Ingredients

FOR THE TARTAR SAUCE

FOR THE FISH

Don’t sweat what kind of fish to use here, as long as it’s a firm white fish.

Instructions

Purée mayonnaise, tomato, lime juice, jalapeno, and Dijon for the tartar sauce in a blender or food processor until smooth; chill until serving.

Prepare fish by cutting fillets into 1 x 3-inch strips; season with salt and pepper.

Combine eggs and milk in a shallow dish. Place flour on a plate and panko on another plate. Dredge each fish strip in flour, tapping off excess, then dip each strip in egg mixture, letting excess drip back into dish. Coat strips with panko, pressing crumbs to adhere.

Heat 1/2 cup oil to 360° in a sauté pan. Fry half of the fish strips on both sides until golden, turning once, about 6 minutes total. Transfer fried fish to a baking sheet; keep warm in a 200° oven. Repeat with remaining fish strips.

Fry each tortilla in 1/2 tsp. oil in a skillet (see Test Kitchen Tip). Assemble tacos with fish and slaw. Top tacos with tartar sauce and Cabbage Slaw.

Dredge fish in flour, dip in the egg mixture, then coat with panko. Briefly air dry fish on a rack.

Be sure the oil is hot (about 360°) before frying fish. This ensures a very crispy crust.
