RECIPE: Homemade Fried Fish Fillet Sandwich

What raises this pseudo-Filet-O-Fish above the one available at McDonald's—you know, the sandwich President Trump calls the "Fish Delight"—is the use of sustainable fish, the sprinkling of fleur de sel, and a perfectly balanced tartar sauce, which combines homemade mayo and herbs, cornichons, capers, and pickled jalapeños.
