GREAT BREADED HOT FISH SANDWICHES
Wed, 08/9/06 11:47 AM
We don't get a whole lot of seafood here in the midwest, but back when I was a kid here in Southern Indiana, there was a place on Old Hwy 50 in Washington, Indiana, called Jim's Hot Fish Stand. It was all carry-out, no dining, but they always had a line. Jim served mainly Hot Fish and burgers. The hot fish were big chunks of Cod with cornmeal breading. Jim fried them up in an iron skillet, took them out and let them cool in another pan, and when you ordered, he would take the already fried piece of cod and place it in a hot skillet for only about a minute, then put it on a bun with whatever condiments were wanted. There have been many different copy restaurants of this sandwich along highway 50 from Loogootee to Vincennes, but today if you want a great hot fish sandwich, the best is at the "STOP AND SEA" ON HWY 50 in Montgomery, Indiana, which is run by Glen. Better get there before 11am or after 2pm because the lunch crowd and the carryouts may cause you to wait awhile. Are there any other restaurants that serve this type of great Cod Fish sandwich?
