Everyday Mom's Meals: Simple Reasons

Simple Reasons

Many EMM fans ask me weekly how I come up with my meal plans, and/or new recipes. As I've said before, there are so many different things I consider when planning our menu, and many different sources to for inspiration. And sometimes, the most simple of reasons can lead to a yummy meal that I then get to share with you. This sandwich came to be simply because I had a coupon I wanted to take advantage of and save some money on our grocery bill. Now I'm not being critical when I say this, but frozen fish products aren't something I buy a lot of. Yes, every once in a while Alex will pick fish sticks for supper, and I will appease him, but for the most they are not on the top of our "must eat" list. However, I had a coupon for the frozen fillets, and since we have eaten them before and they weren't too bad, I figured I could save some cash, and use them in a yummy fish sandwich. Since I was using a pre-cooked product, I wanted to add something fresh, so I figured a homemade tartar sauce would be quick, and make them extra special. These make a nice weeknight meal, especially when you want to take a little extra help from the store. Sometimes the most simple reasoning leads to great things!

Fish Sandwiches with Dill Tartar Sauce
4 frozen battered fish fillets
4 lettuce leaves, washed and trimmed
4 slices tomato
4 hamburger buns

1/2 c. mayo
1/4 c. dill relish, drained well
3/4 tsp. dill weed
1/8 tsp. celery seed
1/4 tsp. Worcestershire
1 TBS lemon juice
Salt and Pepper to taste

Bake fish fillets according to box directions. Mine were at 425 for 25 minutes. In a small bowl combine ingredients for sauce. Chill until ready to use. When fish is cooked, pat any excess grease off with a paper towel. Spread tartar sauce on both sides of bun. Place lettuce leaf on bottom (acts as a nice guard to moisture) fish fillet, then tomato. Serve w/ lemon wedges if desired.
