Basil Fish Sandwiches

I stole this recipe from Cowboy Boots & Baby Booties and make it all of the time. I have a small herb garden and Basil is pretty much my favorite ingredient ever. These are extremely easy and are great served on a really crusty baguette.

Basil Mayonnaise

1 cup light mayo

1 tsp grated lemon rind

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
Process all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Store in airtight container in fridge for up to 1 week.

Makes 1 1/2 cups


2 lb firm fish cooked (I use Tilapia)

1/4 tsp lemon rind

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

2 tbsp olive oil

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 cup purple onion thinly sliced
Flake fish in a medium bowl. add lemon rind and juice, oil, salt and pepper. Tossing gently to coat.

Delicious and easy!
