Ingredients

  • Tacos

  • 8 breaded wild Alaska pollock fillets, 3 oz each
  • 8 (6-7in) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1/4 cup white onion, diced
  • 4 American cheese slices
  • 1 lemon, sliced into 4 wedges
  • Tartar Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream

  • ¼ cup dill pickle, minced

  • ⅛ tsp garlic powder
  • ⅛ tsp celery salt
  • ¼ tsp Worcestershire
  • ⅛ tsp black pepper

Preparation

  1. Step 1 Make the tartar sauce

    Add all tartar sauce ingredients to a bowl then mix until well combined. Refrigerate until needed.

  2. Step 2 Cook the fish

    Preheat the fryer oil to 350 F. Fry for 5 – 7 minutes or until the fish is golden brown. Shake baskets occasionally to prevent fillets from sticking to basket.

  3. Step 3 Assemble the tacos

    Heat flat top or cast iron skillet on high temp. Heat flour tortillas for about 15 seconds per side. Top each tortilla with ½ slice of American cheese, pollock fillet, tartar sauce, diced onions, and shredded lettuce. Serve with a lemon wedge.
