FISH                                                                                             TARTAR SAUCE

4-6 strips of bacon                                                                       1 cup mayonnaise

4 skinless walleye or white bass fillets                                    2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

Salt                                                                                                 2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 cup of flour                                                                                Tabasco sauce to taste

2 eggs, lightly beaten                                                                  1/2 cup chopped pickles

1 cup breadcrumbs                                                                      2 teaspoons capers, chopped

oil for frying (Preference of peanut oil)                                  1 small shallot, chopped

4 large lettuce leaves                                                                   1 tablespoon minced chives

4 to 8 slices of tomato                                                                 Salt and pepper

  • Combine all tartar sauce ingredients in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  • Dredge the fish fillets in flour, then dip in the egg, then in the breadcrumbs.
  • Fry bacon strips slowly until almost crispy. I prefer a slight bend for sandwiches.
  • Heat the peanut oil to 350*F over medium high heat. Fry fillets until they are golden brown, about 2 to 5 minutes per side. Set on paper towels to drain.
  • Gather all your fixin’s. Spread the tartar sauce on both sides of the buns, then add the lettuce, fish fillets, tomato and bacon. Crack an Old Style and enjoy!
