Chef Jonathan Davis
VP Culinary, La Brea Bakery
Brioche buns can instantly elevate an ordinary sandwich. La Brea Bakery’s chef Jonathan Davis starts with the bun, adding a quick slaw mixed with wasabi dressing to give the fish patty an Asian accent. Black sesame seeds and avocado add contrasting textures.
1 brioche bun
1 (4-oz.) crispy fish patty
½ cup shredded cabbage-carrot-cucumber slaw
1 tsp. black sesame seeds
4 tsp. cucumber-wasabi dressing, divided
3 slices avocado
- Brush inside of brioche bun with butter and toast on a flattop or grill until edges are golden. Remove.
- Fry or bake fish patty until golden brown.
- While fish is cooking, make slaw by combining shredded cabbage mixture, sesame seeds and 1 tablespoon of dressing; toss to combine.
- Spread remaining teaspoon of dressing on bottom bun and layer on avocado. Top with fish and slaw. Place top bun on to complete the sandwich.
