"Awesome fish sandwich! Definite keeper! We did take the previous suggestions and added about 1/2 c. mayo. We also grilled rathered than broiled."

"This is an excellent fish sandwich, quick and easy; I used tilapia fillets and they worked well. I agree with the comments about the mayo measurement needing adjustment, I added an additional 1/2 c. to make it thick enough to spread on the rolls, I now have enough for additional sandwiches."
