Arby’s Crispy Fish Sandwich Review 2022

Arby’s Crispy Fish Sandwich Review

Fish sandwiches are one of my favorites fast food choices because they’re filling and tasty and slightly healthier than hamburgers.

Some franchises serve fish year-round, however, others offer the fish for a specific period throughout the year. 

the Arby’s crispy fish sandwiches come with a large Alaskan pollock filet with a mild taste, meaning it’s not too “fishy.” Fried fresh and delicious, it’s an excellent snack option when you’re in the car.

Arby's Crispy Fish Sandwich Review

History and Inspiration

Although Arby’s is most well-known in the roasting industry, this business has decided to show that they have more. The year 2001 was the first time Arby’s offered a fish-based sandwich for a brief period at some places.

The fish sandwich was available later in the year, but only for a brief period together with their brand new Fish and Cheddar sandwich. Today it’s a choice during the seafood season as well as Lent. 

In Lent, many Catholics (and those who don’t) have to give up the consumption of meat and other foods for 40 days. Arby’s offers the Fish Sandwich for sale as a safe Lent alternative.

It’s working since the fish sandwich comes back each year, beginning as late as December and continuing through spring. 

Arby hopes that customers will find its Fish sandwiches an improvement from standard fish sandwiches with a bigger-than-bun filet of fish with delicious flavors.

Types of Arby’s Fish Sandwich

Arby’s offers three fish sandwiches that are only available for a limited time including the Crispy Fish Sandwich the Fish N Cheddar, and King’s Hawaiian Fish Deluxe Sandwich.

Crispy Fish Sandwich Crispy Fish Sandwich is made with crisp Alaskan Pollock Fillet, iceberg lettuce shredded, and tartar sauce on Sesame Seed Bun.

The Fish Sandwich is similar, but it comes featuring cheddar cheese as well as tartar sauce. It’s the King’s Hawaiian Fish Deluxe is the same crisp fish filet that is served with cheddar cheese slices of tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, and tartar sauce served on a King’s Hawaiian bun.

This article will look at the flavor and texture of this original Crispy Fish Sandwich.

Arby’s Crispy Fish Sandwich Review

Original Crispy Fish Sandwich recipe is the option to start with because the three other options are variations.

Crispy Fish Sandwich Crispy Fish Sandwich is made of crisp Alaskan pollock filet shredded iceberg salad and tartar sauce served on Sesame Seed Buns.

It’s compared with the fish sandwiches served by Chick-Fil-A, McDonald’s, and Popeyes as well as we’ll receive mixed reviews.

The primary differentiator is that when sandwiches are not made freshly that is served warm, it can be a little too spongy and not as appealing in texture. If it’s prepared properly, it’s an absolute winner in my opinion.

1. Taste and Texture [4/5]

One of the first things that grabbed my attention is the dimension of this sandwich. The buns are soft and fresh while it’s the Alaskan pollock filet of fish is much larger in comparison to the bun.

It’s wide and thick and instantly gives you the peace of mind that you’re getting the best value. The fish’s smell and flavor are natural and are flake-free for every bite.

Arby’s utilizes a batter made of beer for their fish. This creates an extremely crispy and light coating, which is different from other eateries that use conventional bread crumb, or flour-based breading.

Tartar sauce provides this sandwich with a tangy flavor, and lettuce provides it with freshness. Overall, it’s a delicious sandwich that is different from other restaurants that offer fast food.

2. Are they well? [2/5]

It may seem that the fish sandwich is healthier than other fast food choices however the breading and sauce make it a bit uncertain in terms of nutrition. 

The Crispy Fish contains 560 calories, 25 grams of fat as well as 65g of carbohydrates. You can make this less unhealthy by skipping the sauce or eating the fish with no bun however it’s not as fun.

3. Are they worth it? [4/5]

If you’re looking for a good meat alternative in a fast-food restaurant the Arby’s Crispy Fish Sandwich is a great option. It’s tasty and filling. It offers just the right amount of crunch to the bite. I like the fresh-cut cabbage and tartar sauce that enhance the flavor of the fish. And so long as it’s prepared fresh and hot, it’s definitely worth the effort.

Final Verdict

I love the fact that the fish sandwich is only available at certain times of the year, ensuring you that your fish will be in season. 

I also like the fact that it is likely to be available it on the menu year-round at about the exact time. It’s a smart strategy to allow Arby’s to serve their customers throughout Lent and is priced fairly at $2.99.
