Frito Misto Sub-Mariner Sandwiches | Eat the Universe

Chef Brian Tsao joins Justin Warner for a Namor-Inspired Sandwich

In this week's Eat the Universe, chef Justin Warner welcomes fellow chef Brian Tsao to create an aquatic-themed sandwich inspired by sometime nemesis, sometime "ally" Namor the Sub-Mariner!

While prepping a stack of seafood for these Frito Misto Submarine Sandwiches, Warner and Tsao ask the burning question: Don't chefs have a lot in common with the King of Atlantis? And what roles would they play in such a kingdom?

Ingredients

  • 1 pound mixed seafood, cleaned, such as bay scallops, shrimp, calamari, oysters, or white fish
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 cup instant flour, such as Wondra
  • 2 cups seltzer water
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 submarine sandwich rolls, cut horizontally
  • Fresh seaweed, to serve
  • ½ cup Japanese mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Sambal chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Pinch sugar
  • Parsley leaves, to serve
  • Cilantro leaves, to serve

Instructions

  • Preheat a large fryer to 375 degrees F.
  • Cut the squid tubes into ½-inch rings, oysters into 1-inch pieces, and the fish into ½-inch pieces.
  • In a large bowl, combine 2 cups all-purpose flour and the instant flour. Add the seltzer water and stir to combine. Add the remaining 2 cups all-purpose flour to a shallow dish. Season the all-purpose flour and dredge with salt and pepper.
  • Dredge the fish in the shallow dish of all-purpose flour, shake off any excess, then add to the batter. Carefully drop in the fryer and fry until deeply golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and season with salt. Repeat the process with the oysters, calamari, and bay scallops.
  • In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce, chili sauce, soy sauce, and sugar. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the seaweed, mayonnaise sauce, and fresh herbs to either cut side of the rolls. Mounds with fried seafood. Serve warm.
