"These should look much too big to eat with your bare hands," says Alex Aguilera about his crispy fish sandwiches.

 

Ingredients

 
  •  
        All-purpose flour
  •  
        Salt
  •  
    2 1/4  cups  club soda
  •  
     teaspoon  ground cumin
  •  
     teaspoon  dried oregano
  •  
     teaspoon  hot paprika
  •  
     6-ounce  skinless haddock or hake fillets
  •  
        Freshly ground pepper
  •  
       medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
  •  
       small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  •  
       jalapeno, seeded and thinly sliced
  •  
    1/4  cup  coarsely chopped cilantro
  •  
        Vegetable oil, for frying
  •  
       kaiser rolls, split and toasted
  •  
       large Boston lettuce leaves
 
Directions
 
Fill a large bowl with ice water. In a medium bowl, whisk 2 cups of the flour with 1 teaspoon of salt. Whisk in the club soda until the batter is smooth. Set the bowl in the ice bath; let stand until chilled, 10 minutes.
 
 
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cumin with the oregano and paprika. Season the fish with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the spice mixture. In a large bowl, gently toss the tomatoes with the onion, jalapeno, and cilantro and season with salt.
 
 
In a large, deep skillet, heat 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350 degrees. Place a rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Working with two at a time, dredge the fish fillets in the flour, shaking off any excess. Dip the fillets in the batter and fry, turning once, until golden and cooked through, 4 minutes; transfer to the rack. Repeat with the remaining fish.
 
 

Arrange the rolls on a work surface cut sides up. Top the bottom halves with the lettuce, fried fish, and tomato mixture. Close the sandwiches and serve right away.
