Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all the tartar sauce ingredients in a small bowl, using salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Rinse the fish under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish into 1-inch pieces and put in a bowl with the worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper. Turn the fish to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes or up to 4 hours.
  3. Place the flour in a shallow dish and toss the fish pieces in it, a few at a time, until evenly coated. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Carefully add a few pieces of fish at a time, shaking off excess flour before placing them in the oil. Fry until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes; transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
  4. Spread a dollop of the tartar sauce on a warmed tortilla. Add a few pieces of cucumber and top with 3 to 4 pieces of fish, a few arugala and cilantro leaves and a little orange zest. Serve with lime wedges and more tartar sauce on the side.
