Battered fish with tartar sauce

This recipe resembles the fish fingers I cooked before. But instead of dredging the dory on bread crumbs, I made a batter. In terms of crispiness, I liked the fish fingers more, but in terms of savoring the flavors of spices and the fish, I liked this recipe even more!

Here's what you need

For the batter:
* 1 egg lightly beaten
* 1 cup of sifted flour
* dash of seasoned salt (if not available, you can use plain salt)
* 1/2 cup of water

For the fish:
* 1 fillet of cream dory, cut into strips
* juice from 1 piece of calamansi
* dash of salt and pepper
* Canola cooking oil for frying

For the tartar sauce:
* 2 to 3 tablespoons of lite mayonnaise
* 1 tablespoon of sweet pickled relish
* 1/2 teaspoon of spanish paprika
* fresh parsley
* pinch of black ground pepper

What you need to do:

* On a bowl, combine the fish strips, calamansi and salt. Set aside.

* On another bowl, mix the flour and egg. While mixing, gradually add water. Sprinkle with seasoned salt.

* Dip the fish on the batter.

* Deep fry by batches. Make sure to leave enough space in between the fishes when frying. We don't want the fish strips to look like a maruya. :D (banana fritters). Drain on paper towel.

* Serve with tartar sauce.

* Happy eating!
