Now that we have our ingredients ready, let’s dive into the step-by-step process of creating the Cannabis-Infused Fish Bread Sandwich:
Step 1: Crafting the Cannabis Butter
Begin by melting the cannabis-infused butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
Add the finely minced garlic and finely chopped thyme to the melted butter.
Allow the mixture to gently simmer for approximately 5 minutes, letting the flavors meld.
Season the cannabis butter with salt and pepper to suit your taste. Set it aside for later use.
Step 2: Preparing the Fish
Heat your olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Season the fish fillets generously with salt and pepper.
Place the seasoned fillets into the heated skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until they turn golden and are thoroughly cooked.
Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the cooked fish and remove them from the heat.
Step 3: Assembling Your Sandwich
Carefully slice your fresh bread rolls in half and lightly toast them.
Spread a generous layer of the cannabis-infused butter on the inside of each roll.
Start building your sandwich by layering the mixed salad greens, thinly sliced avocado, red onion, and cucumber onto the bottom half of each roll.
Place a perfectly cooked fish fillet on top of the fresh, crisp ingredients.
For an extra zesty twist, you can drizzle cannabis-infused mayonnaise over the top.
Step 4: Presentation and Enjoyment
Gently bring the top and bottom halves of the sandwich together to create a mouthwatering masterpiece.
Serve your Cannabis-Infused Fish Bread Sandwich with your preferred side dish—perhaps a garden salad or some delectable sweet potato fries.
