Herbs & Beer Fish Fingers with Herb Tartare


Give me fish anyday at any time! I live by the seaside and I like fish in any form but panko coated fillets with a good Tartare is one of my favourite dishes in summer. I like to play with my marinades depending on the fish. A fattier fish like salmon needs more acidity to counter off the fatness; a more neutral fish like cod or haddock will accept stronger flavours. In this recipe I chose to go strong on garlic and herbs with the added beer to give the fish a strong character. I used the same herbs on the Tartare sauce that I used on the Panko mix for added flavour.
