Finely crush saltine crackers 2 1/3 Cup (37.33 tbs)
Buttermilk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Eggs 3
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Pepper 1/4 Teaspoon
Cod pieces 8
Tartar sauce:
Finely minced yellow onions 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Finely minced fresh parsley 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (stems removed)
Dill pickle relish 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , drained
Mayonnaise 2 Cup (32 tbs)



1. Place flour in a bowl and place crackers in another bowl. (Make sure bowls are big enough so you have enough space to coat fish.)

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, salt, and pepper.

3. Coat fish pieces with flour, shaking off excess.

4. Dip into buttermilk mixture.

5. Then crackers coating evenly and pressing crackers firmly onto fish.

6. Deep fry in oil (350-365) till done and golden brown.

7. For the tartar sauce: In a medium bowl mix onions, parsley, mayonnaise, and relish.
