Things You Need For This Recipe:

 

· 4 tilapia fillets

 

· 1 tablespoon of baking powder

 

· 1 tablespoon of vinegar

 

· 1 cup all-purpose flour

 

· Vegetable oil, (for frying)

 

· ½ of cup milk

 

· 1/2 cup of water

 

· ¼ of teaspoon salt

 

How To Go About Cooking?

 

Fillets can be removed but if they are still attached in the center, you can cut the fillets along a side of the strip that is running down the centre. Since the strip has lots of gristle, it should be discarded. Cut the entire fish crosswise making 3 inch by half-inch strips.

 

For making a batter, create a mixture of salt, milk, water, baking powder, flour and vinegar. Put the vegetable oil in the deep fryer and heat it up to 370 F. Now, you should get the fish strips and dip them in the batter one by one. Finally, you should cook the goujonettes for around 30 seconds until they turn golden brown. You can then drain the goujonettes on paper towels to serve with the tasty tartar sauce.
