For those who know us, you know that the a Golden Tilefish has been our mascot fish since 1985, so we thought we’d have some fun with it and do our take off a certain famous fast food fish sandwich. This is a ton of fun to make and way better than anything you’ll ever get out of a drive through, we promise!
