McDonald's Filet-O-Fish

Recipe Rating: 3.8 (4 reviews)
The year 1963 was a big one in McDonald's history. The 500th McDonald's restaurant opened in Toledo, Ohio, and Hamburger University graduated its 500th student. It was in that same year that McDonald's served its one billionth hamburger in grand fashion on The Art Linkletter Show. Ronald McDonald also made his debut that year in Washington, D.C. one of Willard Scotts earlier jobs-he hasn't changed much. And the Fillet-O-Fish sandwich was introduced as the first new menu addition since the restaurant chain opened in 1948.

2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoon sweet relish
2 teaspoons minced onion
Pinch salt
2 plain hamburger buns
2 Mrs. Paul's breaded fish portions (square)
1 slice American cheese

1. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, relish, minced onion, and salt and set aside. This is your tartar sauce.

2., Lightly grill the faces of the bun

3. Cook the fish according to the package instructions. You can bake the fish, but your sandwich will taste much more like the original if you fry it in oil.

4. Divide the tartar sauce and spread it evenly on each of the top buns.

5. Slice the cheese in half and place a piece on each of the bottom buns.

6. Place the cooked fish on top of the cheese slice on each sandwich, and top off the sandwiches with the top buns.

7. Microwave each sandwich on high for 10 seconds.

Makes 2 sandwiches

If you can find fish only in wedge shapes, just use two wedges on each sandwich, fitting them together side by side to form a square.
