For a simpler preparation you can use store bought mayo but the addition of a spoonful or pureed chipotles en adobo (out of can from the store) are a nice, smoky-spicy addition.

For the mayonnaise:

2 egg yolks

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 Cup canola or grapeseed oil

½ Cup extra virgin olive oil

½ teaspoon cumin, toasted and ground

FULL MOON FISH SANDWICH, ‘FULL MOON SALOON’ Norman and Justin Van Aken © All rights reserved. “My Key West Kitchen" No sandwich in the history of Key West was consumed by more drunks on premise than this one. No sandwich saved more people from a certain, potentially lethal, hangover. Essentially it is a fresh as can be fish sandwich but smothered in cheese and mushrooms. This bar from whence the sandwich was wrought survived during the most ‘party til you drop’ years of a very substantial partying town.

French Fries

We were not sure about including a recipe for French Fries in that there are so many in other books. But if that is so why do we suffer through so many ORDINARY fries out there? I have been loving and eating Janets french fries about 12 years longer than Justin has. And that is due to his arriving on the French Fry scene here took being born first. I had her home-made, hand made fries in her parents home while she was still in high school. Never have I had better.
