This recipe is from Cuisine at Home. I made a few changes to suit our taste, but by far my families favorite. Prepare the tartar sauce and relish early. Prepare batter for dipping fish just before use.
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
- 1 tablespoon capers (drained)
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons horseradish
- 1 lemon, zest of
- 1 lb white fish fillet
Coating for fish
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup club soda
- 1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
- 1 1⁄2 cups panko breadcrumbs
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup green cabbage (sliced thinly)
- 1⁄4 cup carrot (julienne)
- 1⁄4 cup red onion (sliced thinly)
- 1⁄4 cup granny smith apple (julienne)
- 1 jalapeno, seeded, sliced thinly
- 4 corn tortillas (6-inch)
- 1⁄2 inch vegetable oil
- Tartar Sauce:.
- Mix all ingredients in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap, refrigerate until time to serve.
- Mix the lemon juice, olive oil and sugar in a large bowl. Place the rest of the ingredients and toss. Cover with plastic wrap place in refrigerator until ready to serve.
- prepare fish by cutting into 1x3" strips. If using frozen fish (I use cod from Trader Joes) after thawing place fish strips on a clean dish towel and gently squeeze any extra water out.
- In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking powder together. Add the club soda and Tabasco sauce. This will be a thick batter.
- In another bowl place the panko bread crumbs.
- Heat vegetable oil to 375 degree (I use a thermometer).
- Dredge the fish in the wet batter then place in Panko bread crumbs gently pressing to make sure the crumbs adhere. Gently place the fish strips into the 375 degree oil. Fry half the fish on both sides until golden, turning once, about 5-6 minutes total. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in 200 degree oven.
- Fry each tortilla by heating a sauté pan and spraying each side of the tortilla with vegetable oil spray.
- Assemble tacos with slaw, fish and top with tartar sauce.
I used flounder for this. It was excellent!
There were some problems with the ingredients. I believe the amount of oil for the slaw is 1 t.? One pound of fish was WAY too much for the amount of slaw. We had 6 tacos, and didn't eat half the fish. I didn't even get a whole pound because it was looking like so much! I think about 3/8 of a pound would be closer. Actually, I'd probably get 3/4 pound fish and double the slaw! The husband liked it a lot.
I used this recipe to deep fry some Fresh Water Bass my husband brought home....I made the tartar sauce too and both were fantastic. Restaurant quality frid fish. Thank you so much!
Fabulous! We made these with halibut and they were amazing.
