Review: Burger King - Alaskan Fish Sandwich

Burger King's Alaskan Fish Sandwich features a filet of white Alaskan pollock breaded with panko (bread crumbs), and served with tartar sauce, pickles, and lettuce, on a toasted artisan-style bun

It's normally $3.39, but I picked one up as part of the current two for $5 deal.

There was a nice full flavor to the fish and tartar sauce that was working for me. I'm not sure about the pickles though as the tartar sauce is already plenty tangy.

The fish filet was fried with a crispy shell. While the flavor and texture was good, it was all marred by a lot of oil. For whatever reason, the fish filet absorbed a lot of oil. On one bite, it literally spat oil out! The breading was also pretty oily. It was pretty offputting.

The bun is dense but super soft. It's the same bun Burger King uses for their chicken sandwiches and some of their limited-time premium sandwiches. The lettuce added the requisite fresh crispness.

Overall, I liked the flavor and textures of Burger King's Alaskan Fish Sandwich, but it was way too oily for my liking.
