Fried Fish Sandwich



  • 2 Tbsp Bread & Butta Pickles
  • 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice, Freshly Squeezed
  • 1 Tbsp Dill, Finely Chopped
  • 1 Cup Lettuce
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1 Tbsp Capers, Finely Chopped
  • Kosher Salt
  • Pepper, Freshly Ground
  • Peanut or Vegetable Oil, for Frying
  • 4 Filets (3-4 Oz Each) White Fish, Such as Cod or Halibut
  • 1 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour, Divided
  • 1/2 Tsp Corn Starch
  • 1/2 Tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup Beer
  • 4 Toasted Buns for Serving


  1. For the tartar sauce, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill, pickles, and capers in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. For the fish, preheat oil to 350 degrees in a heavy bottom pan or deep fryer. In a medium bowl, whisk together corn starch, 1 cup flour, paprika, baking powder, cayenne, salt, and black pepper. Add beer to dry ingredients and mix; the batter should be similar to that of pancake batter. Add remaining 1/2 cup flour to a plate.
  3. Season fish generously with salt and pepper. Work with one filet at a time, fully coat fish in flour, then dip both sides of fish into batter, making sure to let excess barrer drip back into the bowl. Then, coat fish in flour again; this creates the crunchy bits of batter. Repeat this process with the remaining fish.
  4. Carefully add fish to oil and fry until crispy to touch and golden, abut 8-10 minutes. You will most likely need to turn the fish occasionally to ensure even crisp. Remove to a towel lined plate and immediatly season.
  5. For presentation, spread a layer of tartar sauce on each half of the buns. Top with fish, red onions, lettuce, tartar sauce and Dilly Garlic Pickle Chips.
  6. Enjoy!
