Tilapia Banh Mi
Vietnamese sandwiches (or “banh mi”) are typically filled with meat, but this lighter version uses baked tilapia. Be sure to pickle the daikon and carrots ahead of time, which will help the vegetables absorb the sweet and sour flavor of the brine. Daikon radish can be found in Asian or specialty supermarkets, but if you’re having difficulty finding it, you can use sliced cucumber instead.
