I decided to have a "cheat" day from my good eating, and Rick and I had some fried flounder last night. He likes to cut the fish into nuggets so we did that. I breaded them with the awesome House Autry breading. It makes for perfect fried seafood whether it be fish or shrimp. Rick did the frying because he's better at it than I am. I'm way too impatient to get them all as crispy and golden brown the way that he likes it. While he was cooking, I made a tartar sauce to go with the flounder. I used a recipe from epicurious.com for a Cajun tartar sauce, made some changes, and cut it in half. Sadly, I forgot to put it up when I went to bed last night (our cole slaw met the same fate, too :( ). The tartar sauce turned out really well! I'll definitely do it again! Here's what I did...
Cajun Tartar Sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon capers, rinsed, drained, and chopped
Juice of half a lemon
1/2 tablespoon prepared horseradish
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (I used Emeril's Bayou Blast)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and chill in the refrigerator (covered) before serving.Enjoy!
