From the Test Kitchen

These quick sandwiches pack some of our favorite Mediterranean seaside flavors. Briny capers brighten up a creamy, garlicky aioli (a popular condiment for seafood), while tender baby kale tossed with a bit of vinegar-marinated shallot perfectly balances the sandwiches’ savory elements. We’re also using some of the marinated shallot to dress slightly bitter, crisp endive, for a simple and elegant side salad.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the caper aioli:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the caper aioli:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the buns. Peel the shallot and mince to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra). Cut off and discard the radish ends; thinly slice into rounds. Cut off and discard the endive root; halve lengthwise, then crosswise. Roughly chop the kale. Roughly chop the capers. Peel and mince the garlic; smash with the side of your knife until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, capers and up to half the garlic paste; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Marinate the shallot:
2 Marinate the shallot:

In a bowl, combine the shallot, vinegar, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and as much of the remaining garlic paste as you’d like. Stir to thoroughly combine; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3 Cook the cod:

While the shallot marinates, pat the cod fillets dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Transfer to a plate. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fillets and cook 3 to 5 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

5 Toast the buns:

Add the buns, cut sides down, to the pan of reserved fond. (If the pan seems dry, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil.) Toast on medium-high 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a clean, dry work surface.
