Review: Wendy's - Premium Fish Fillet Sandwich

Wendy's Premium Fish Fillet Sandwich is their seasonal seafood offering around this time of year. It features a hand-cut fillet of North Pacific Cod, breaded in a deep-fried panko crumb coating along with lettuce and tartar sauce on a buttered and toasted bun.

My local Wendy's offers them for $3.49, but I received this one courtesy of Wendy's.

The bun used here is Wendy's premium bun that they use for their non-junior hamburgers and chicken sandwiches. It's pretty soft and has a distinct buttery flavor.

The fish fillet comes cut to a decent thickness and has a satisfyingly, if oily, crispy coating. There wasn't too much in the way of seasoning to the breading though. The fish filet inside was tender and flaky with a very light flavor.

The lettuce was fresh and crisp and the tartar sauce wasn't too heavy. In fact, the sauce was too light.

While the textures of Wendy's Premium Fish Fillet were spot on, the taste was fairly lacking. The whole sandwich came off as bland. I thought the tartar sauce might pick up as I ate, but it didn't.
