Doesn’t that look nice? Even though I couldn’t stand it and took a bite of fish before I took the pic?
On Wednesdays, I work from home most weeks, which gives me the opportunity to do things that are a bit more involved for supper. Tonight was definitely one of those nights because there was a little prep in making the tartar sauce, and cutting the potatoes. The fish was oddly the quickest part of this whole thing.
This is the “Beer” battered fish and chips recipe from Everyday Paleo, which we used sparkling water and turned out great. I have been trying to find a good way to do fish that we really liked, and I think this is going to be it. It was super simple, and even Baby Girl really enjoyed it. We used tilapia and grouper, and it turned out really, really well. We also made the “chips”, and they were pretty easy other than just the simple act of cutting them all up.
And the tartar sauce is from the same recipe. That did take longer than I expected because I thought we had something I could use for mayonnaise, but we didn’t have enough to make the tartar sauce, so I had to make the Everyday Paleo Mayo, then use that mayo to make Everyday Paleo Tartar Sauce. So, the whole process was not quick, but the tartar sauce turned out pretty well, and was a really good compliment to the fish, though it didn’t taste exactly like the tartar I am used to from the store as the dill was a little more overpowering than I expected. But it was a good sauce that I may end up using on things other than fish, which I wouldn’t do with regular tartar.
We will definitely be doing this again as soon as I can get another good deal on fish.
