A Taste Test of the Wendy's Premium Cod Fillet Sandwich

Now that we know more about the Wendy's fish sandwich, how does it taste? My husband decided to give it a try and share a bite with me. I am on a diet and prefer to eat grilled fish, which would be a great addition to Wendy's menu. With that in mind, I did think this fish sandwich was delicious. While I will not be eating it because of my dietary constraints, my husband would have it again.

The fish is flaky and had a nice juiciness rather than being dry. The bread crumbs were light and crispy without having that deep-fried flavor. The lettuce was fresh and crisp with just the right amount of tangy tartar sauce. My husband also orders this fish sandwich with just ketchup and cheese. He prefers it without the tartar sauce and lettuce. It is good to know it can be customized to suit the customer's palate. It is ideal with a baked potato or Wendy's natural fries, which are almost as good as those original British “chips” traditionally served with fish. Wendy's fish sandwich is a good solution for people who do not always want to cook fish on Fridays during Lent.
