Ingredients

How to make it

  • To make the Cream Sauce, mix sour cream, mayo, lemon rind, lemon juice, pickles, capers and herbs together. Place in the fridge to chill.
  • To make the batter, sift flour into a bowl. Mix in the Parmesan, soda and a pinch of salt. Whisk in the egg yolk and milk in to the batter to make it thick, but smooth. Gradually whisk in 6 tbsp. water. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Whisk the egg white until stiff in a separate bowl. Gently fold it into the batter until just blended. Do NOT stir it in vigorously. Folding it gently will help make the batter light.
  • Skin the fish and cut it into strips on an angle. Place the flour in a large shallow plate and season it with salt and pepper. Dredge the fish strips lightly in the seasoned flour, shaking off the excess.
  • Heat at least 2 inches of oil in a large pan, or a deep frier to the medium-high heat (about 350F).
  • Dip floured fish into batter, then drop gently into the hot oil. Cook fish for about 3-4 minutes, turning once. Cook in batches to prevent the strips from sticking to each other. When the batter is golden and crisp, remove the fish with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • Serve hot, accompanied by the Cream Sauce.

    STOP! I can't stand this - your pictures are putting me into a food coma (and I'm loving it)! Is there no way I can persuade you to come "up north" and be my personal chef??? How about we open a restaurant - you do the main course/sides and I'll do desserts..yeah! A match made in heaven!! Though I'm afraid I would eat all the profits... This dish looks 100% bonifide delish, and I know it will taste as good as it looks...Krum

    I love parmesan and scallops, hold over from my days at Le Pompano. They were a favorite dish. This is a wonderful combination and I know I would love it. Great Batter and Great Sauce.
