    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Make certain to prepare the tartar sauce at least a few hours in advance to blend flavors, the crushed saltines makes a wonderful coating for the fish, but make certain that they are finely crushed! I like whitefish, pickerel fillets, tilapia or sole for this, but any thinner fish fillets will do.

      Though I did not make the tarter sauce, I have made the fish twice now. As a regular fish eater I have several different ways to make it (variety being the spice...) however, this one gets all my tilapia going forward.
