DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the buttermilk, red onion, scallions, dill, garlic, zest, and chile paste in a baking dish. Whisk or stir well.
  • Lay the fillets in the marinade, making sure you've got them completely coated. Cover with plastic and marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  • Remove the fish from the marinade and season it with salt and pepper. Coat the fillets well with flour.
  • Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a heavy skillet (cast-iron is best) until very hot but not smoking. Fry the fish in batches for about 1 1/2 minutes on the first side, then turn and fry for another 45 seconds. The crust should be golden.
  • Drain on paper towels and serve with the tartar sauce.
