While in Oklahoma serving my country, I would always visit McDonalds, for two of these. It wasn’t the bun, or fish that I liked, it was the tarter sauce. It’s still my favorite, as it is very easy, and tasty, I’ve had none like it.. I had tried to replicate this over the years, but never quite mastered it! A friend suggested Vlasic dill
pickle relish, and that nailed it for me. As much as I try, I still can’t taste sweet pickle relish as an ingredient, and wouldn’t use it anyway.
Thank you so much, for bringing back memories!
I've been fortunate to have McDonald's fish filet sandwich overseas in Germany and their fish patty is bigger and cooked to order. I agree the bun should be steamed instead of toasted and the closest I've found is a Sarah Lee's potato buns and the closest cheese is Borden's sliced Sharp American cheese.
Except the real thing comes with steamed buns, not grilled. For that I have to knock you down on rating, since that was the selling point of a McD's Filet-O-Fish.
I only used 1tsp of relish with the 2tablespoons of Mayo. I added a teaspoon of course mustard. I liked it.

Try using Todd's recipe for Luby's tartar sauce. It puts this sandwich over the top.

Tartar sauce is nothing like McDonalds, way to sweet and no zing! Sorry
Just followed the recipe it makes a good lunch

Yum. Will use this often during Lent instead of driving to Mickey D's. Thanks Todd
