Everything You Need To Know About Wendy's New Panko Fish Sandwich

If you want to mark the spirit of Ash Wednesday and forgo meat, Wendy's has your back. Anyone who observed the day last year could hop on over to Wendy's and grab a signature cod sandwich, which typically featured a panko-breaded and fried cod filet on a toasted bun, served with a pickle, lettuce and tartar sauce (via The Daily Meal). Times have changed, and while we can still expect a fish sandwich for Ash Wednesday's lunch (or dinner) from Wendy's this year, don't expect your typical panko-breaded cod offering. 

According to Chewboom, the fast food chain now offers the Crispy Panko Fish Sandwich, replacing the cod with wild-caught Alaskan pollock, served on a bun with dill tartar sauce, lettuce, cheese, and dill pickles. The sandwich has a buttery and flaky texture, in addition to notes of garlic and onion, making it the perfect alternative to your favorite burger. You can grab one of these sandwiches for $4.19 at any participating Wendy's restaurant for a limited time. If you loved the original cod sandwich but feel apprehensive about this new pollock offering, wait until you hear the details.

A new Wendy's fish sandwich for anyone looking to abstain from meat

If you love a solid fried fish sandwich, Wendy's latest offering has all the bases covered. According to Wendy's, the new pollock sandwich builds upon the flavor of their original panko cod sandwich, and goes great with a side of fries and a glass of Dr. Pepper. If the idea of the sandwich sounds perfect, but you wished you could order it without the cheese, have no fear. You can grab the sandwich with or without this topping, and since the new panko fish sandwich launched yesterday, you can head to a location near you to try one now.

If you can't get enough of Wendy's fish sandwich each year, make sure to not pass up this offer. It just takes one bite to get hooked on this perfect menu item for anyone looking to celebrate Ash Wednesday, or just indulge in a bit of seafood. See what the buzz is today and get them while you can. With a limited time to snatch up a sandwich, you don't want to get left in the dust on this deal!
