This simple recipe for Battered Fish and Shrimp with French Fries and Tartar Sauce is an awesome seafood dinner. It is packed with tons of flavor. A bonus is that the batter and tartar sauce are homemade, so you know exactly what’s in it. They consist of simple ingredients that you have in your refrigerator and pantry already.
2 Lbs Skinless Fish Fillets (flounder, whiting, talapia, perch and cod are all OK to use for this recipe)
1/2 Lb Shrimp Peeled, Deveined And Butterflied
2 Cups Frozen French Fries
– Homemade Batter –
1 Cup Flour
1 Tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 Cup Seltzer Water
– Homemade Tartar Sauce –
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweet relish
1/2 tablespoon of shredded carrot (optional)
A pinch of salt and pepper
Juice from 1/2 of a lemon (a whole lemon if you really like it tart)
First, prepare your batter, by mixing flour, seasoning and seltzer water in a large bowl or dish. Batter should be thick enough to generously coat fish and shrimp. Next, in a large fry pan add the oil and place on medium high heat.
Now, fry your French fries until golden brown and place on a baking sheet. Place baking sheet in the oven on warm. Then allow the oil to reheat for two to three minutes. Meanwhile, coat fish fillets with batter on both sides. Carefully, place fish in the oil. Allow fish to cook for three minutes on each side until golden brown. Repeat this process to fry the shrimp. Remember that shrimp cooks faster than fish. Also, don’t forget to place fish and shrimp on a cooling rack to allow excess oil to drain.
Finally, combine the ingredients for your fresh tartar sauce and adjust ingredients as needed for taste. Place a dollop on the side and use it as a dip for your fish and shrimp.
