Hardee's And Carl's Jr. Have Good News For Fans Of Their Fish Sandwiches

The good times have arrived for anyone who loves a solid fish sandwich. According to the Square Deal Blog, we can now grab panko-fried Alaskan pollock sandwiches from Wendy's. But if you crave more variety, Hardee's and Carl's Jr. have you covered. According to Chewboom, we can expect to observe Lent right with beer-battered fish sandwiches from the chains, coming to a menu near you today. You can pick one up for around $3.29, or grab two for $5. If those prices can't get you amped up to try one of these new sandwiches, wait until you hear about the mouth-watering ingredients that go into each item.

According to Guilty Eats, the Hardee's and Carl's Jr. sandwiches have a lot in common, but some slight differences make it worth trying both if you get the chance. The Hardee's beer-battered fish sandwich features tartar sauce and shredded lettuce packed onto a toasted bun with the fried fillet, while the Carl's Jr. variant replaces the shredded lettuce with full leaves of lettuce and uses a sesame seed bun. The sandwiches have popped up for Lent, meaning that once the season ends, we can say goodbye to these treats that are guaranteed to quickly gain a following.

The perfect fish sandwich for Lent

Hardee's and Carl's Jr. have a long history of doling out great fish sandwiches. The brands introduced eaters to the Redhook Beer Battered Cod Sandwich in the past, which included lettuce, tomato, tartar sauce, and a beer-battered filet made with Redhook Extra Special Bitter ale (via Brand Eating). With a storied tradition of serving seafood fans what they want, we can expect great things from both brands' new beer-battered fish sandwiches this year.
