I have an embarrassing penchant for fish burgers, and an even more embarrassing penchant for McDonald’s Filet-o-fish. After a midweek session last week, I desperately craved this particular burger, in full anticipation of ultimate disappointment.
But I wasn’t disappointed – in fact my tired and hungover body and brain spent the entire day craving another filet-o-fish. The crispy coating, the flaky fish, the nice and mild tartare sauce, and the cheese single that seals the deal (sometimes processed is best). Oh, the shame. The very public shame that I share on this blog with thousands of people who don’t know – and very many I do.
I needed to wean myself off this particular craving, so spent the next few days making my own home-made fish burgers. Anyway, to the point: I can’t find a decent tartare sauce to match the particular concoction that McDonald’s puts together. Colman’s tartare sauce is way too strong and completely overpowers fish, but I’ve yet to find a decent alternative. As fish burgers are one of my favourite eats, can anyone help out with a recommendation?
Meanwhile, CheapEats reader Martin Maher gets in touch to ask:
Just wondering is it possible to buy A1 steak sauce in Ireland anywhere? Please if someone can point me to a place that supplies this.
So, dear readers, can you help Martin and I with our conundrums?
