Crispy Fish Fillets With Tartar Sauce Recipe
These are coated in a cracker crust!
We love the taste and the crunch that crackers give to fried food! For this fish fillet recipe, we crushed saltine crackers into fine crumbs, similar to fine dry breadcrumbs. This gave the fish a tasty salty flavor plus a little textural crunch with every bite. Paired with the tangy homemade tartar sauce instead of plain vinegar, this makes a perfect meal served with thick-cut fries. No rice needed!
Here's a pro tip: Heat the oil to 160 degrees C or 325 degrees F but never let it go over 180 degrees C or 350 degrees F. The oil will be hot enough to cook the fish but won't over brown your crust before the fish is cooked through.
