Veracruz Fish Sandwich

Tracking Pixel
This is the second of two recipes I was hired to create for Imagine® featuring their culinary simmer sauces. Just like with my first recipe (for this super saucy, spicy, cheese Creole Shrimp Pizza), I decided to get creative with the sauce.

This time, I chose the Latin Veracruz sauce, which is a savory Mexican-inspired sauce rich with peppers and tomatoes. It's fantastic with fish, and so I decided to use it to make really easy and flavorful Veracruz Fish Sandwiches.

To make them, I simple seared the fish (I chose mahi mahi fillets, but any firm white fish will work) in a pan, then added the sauce and simmered for a few minutes until cooked through.

Then I layered these into soft brioche rolls, topping off with a bit more sauce, some cumin-spiced mayo, and thinly sliced cucumbers. A few lime wedges on the side and a glass of crisp white wine for the grown-ups, and it makes for an amazingly easy dinner that's ready in less than 15 minutes.

If you'd like to recreate this recipe at home, here's a way to get you started! The folks at Imagine® are hosting an awesome sweeps on their Facebook page where they're giving away a "Pan with a Plan" prize pack that includes a beautiful sauté pan, four Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauces, and a $25 gift card. 

They're giving away 48 (!!) of these total, so your chances are pretty great.

Veracruz Fish Sandwich
Serves 4

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 firm white fish fillets (such as mahi mahi or halibut)
Kosher salt and black pepper
1 packet Latin Veracruz Imagine® Culinary Simmer Sauce
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon cumin
4 sandwich rolls
1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
2 large limes, cut into wedges

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the oil. Season the fish generously with salt and pepper, and then place skin-side down in the hot oil. Sear for 5 minutes. Flip to other side and add the entire packet of Latin Veracruz Imagine® Culinary Simmer Sauce. Let simmer 5-7 minutes or until fish is fully cooked.

While fish cooks, make the mayo. Whisk together mayonnaise, cumin, and squeeze in 1 lime wedge.

Spread the rolls with the cumin mayo and top with the fish, add an additional spoonful of sauce on top, along with the sliced cucumbers. Serve with additional lime wedges on the side.
