No doubt by now you've seen the ad for Hardee's new Cod Sandwich featuring Nina Agdal. Every year around this time, being Catholic, I switch to a diet of mostly fish. You can see it in Fast Food establishments around the Lent season, most places began primarily featuring fish sandwiches as specials and in commercials. Hardee's is no different.
But I get bored with the usual fried fish sandwich. McDonald's Filet O' Fish is usually on the bottom rung of the taste spectrum, and on the higher end would be Arby's fish sandwich. Until now. This fish sandwich is utterly delicious.
Granted, it looks nothing like the ad. This sandwich, as described by Hardee's, is "A Charbroiled Atlantic Cod Fillet, Tartar Sauce, Tomato and Lettuce served on a Honey Wheat Bun." And it tastes great. The grilled fish patty tastes leaps and bounds ahead of the usual bland fried fish patty, the honey wheat bun is also a standout, as well. The tangy tartar sauce blends well with the flavorful fish patty. I just wish they used a better quality lettuce, perhaps leaf lettuce, and cut the tomatoes a little thicker. That being said, this is definitely the best fast food fish sandwich around. I can definitely tell I'll be eating quite a few of these throughout the Lent season, and after if they keep it around.
