Ingredients (7)

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website. For dips, make and enjoy your dip creation. Then, refrigerate within 2 hours or discard.

Steps (3)

  1. 1
    In a small bowl, combine sour cream, pickles and seasoning mix, and stir until well blended. Chill covered for 1 hour.
  2. 2
    Place the bread crumbs and egg on each of two large plates. Dip the fillets in egg, then lightly coat with the bread crumbs.
  3. 3
    Heat the oil in a large deep skillet to a temperature of 350°F. Fry the fillets for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until golden. With a spatula or slotted spoon remove the fillets from the pan to drain on a bed of paper towels. Keep warm until ready to eat; serve with sauce and fresh lemon wedges, if desired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Delicious! I made this tartar sauce for the first last week and I was very surprised. This tartar sauce is a lot better than the bottled tartar sauce. It made the fried fish and fried shrimp tasted better. This is my new tartar sauce with ranch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty! I love tartar sauce on fish but when I saw this I knew I had to try it. It is a great alternative to regular tartar sauce. It kicks the flavor up a notch. I will definitely make this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fish dish This really brings out th flavor of your fish. It also adds to the flavor of th crust on fish. Sprinkle it on your fries also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yummy treat This was really tasty, Had the kids help make it. They love the bold , flavors. It was easy to prepare and I would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dish! I followed the recipe for the most part and the change I made was a good one. I left out a teaspoon of the seasoning that went into the dipping sauce and I put it in my breading mixture for the fish. To season it up, if you will. I’m so glad I did because I’m pretty sure I’ll put it in most of my breading for any dish, it was so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tartar sauce ever Made this to accompany some fried haddock sandwiches and french fries. My husband loved it so much he used it both on the sandwich and the fries. The next day I found him using the left-over as a chip dip! It is now my go-to tartar sauce.
