I've also included my super easy recipe for homemade tartar sauce, because I have yet to find a bottle or jar of tartar sauce here in Mexico.
Hamburguesas de Pescado
- 3 tilapia fillets, cut in half cross-wise
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- Beer Batter (recipe follows)
- Tartar Sauce (recipe follows)
In small bowl, combine flour and seasoning salt; mix well and set aside. Rinse tilapia fillets with water. Pat them dry with paper towels. Season fillets with salt and pepper. Dust fillets with flour mixture. (This gives the batter something to adhere to.) Fill large skillet 1/2 inch with vegetable oil. Dip fillets in beer batter. Carefully place fish in hot oil. Fry in oil until fish is golden brown on both sides. Remove to paper towel lined plate to drain off excess oil. Serve on hamburger buns; top with tartar sauce, lettuce and tomato.
In medium bowl, combine 1 cup all-purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Whisk in 1 large egg and 1 cup very cold beer until no lumps remain. Set aside until ready to use.
In small bowl, mix together 3/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/4 cup finely chopped pickel, 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion and 1 tablespoon pickel juice. Cover and regrigerate until ready to use.
