Fish Sticks With White Sauce

When, I was growing up in Texas... my folks would deep fry fish in a big black pot...talking about gooooood!!!!WOW!!!! Fish Sticks ...??? Yes!!! Fish stick with real catfish, halibut and mostly cob would be used.

When the fish was fried you can do so much with it.

Making Fish Taco


2 pounds skinless whitefish fillets, such as cod, haddock, or halibut, cut crosswise into 4 by 1-inch strips

Salt and pepper

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup cornstarch

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup beer

1 quart peanut or vegetable oil

Pat fish dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Whisk flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon salt together in large bowl. Add beer and whisk until smooth.

In a deep fryer add oils and heat medium high heat to 350 degrees. dip fish into batter mixing very well to coat, remove fish from batter, allowing excess to drip back into bowl, add to hot oil, briefly dragging fish along surface of oil this will keep it from sticking together,fry until golden brown and crispy and flowing. Return oil to 350 degrees and repeat with remaining fish.

White Sauce:

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons lime juice or lemon

2 tablespoons milk
