Preheat oven to 300°.
Combine mayonnaise, pickles, capers, parsley, zest, lemon juice, 1 tsp. Dijon, black pepper, salt, and 1/8 tsp. cayenne for the tartar sauce.
Place flour and panko in two separate shallow dishes.
Whisk together eggs, 1 Tbsp. Dijon, and 1/4 tsp. cayenne in a third shallow dish.
Dredge each fillet in flour, dip into egg mixture, then dredge in panko.
Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of an ovenproof skillet over medium-high. Add fillets; fry until deep golden brown, 5–6 minutes. Gently flip fillets; transfer skillet to oven.
Bake fillets until a thermometer inserted into centers registers 145°, 4–6 minutes; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Serve fillets with tartar sauce.
For extra-crispy fish, and maximum coverage, dredge the fillets in the flour, egg, and panko two times.
