I like mine with Mayonaise. Lemon or lime juice just kills the taste of the fish.

Hmm - I only just noticed on this thread that Americans spell it tartar sauce rather than tartare sauce (I've only been here like 10 years, must be slow)

Just a squeeze of lemon juice on my pan-fried fish, thanks! Maybe some garlic butter, depending on whatever else is on the plate. I reserve ketchup only for fish that would otherwise be inedible (overcooked, dry, tasteless, or out of a packet from the supermarket freezer).

I'm assuming the hot sauce is a southern thing?

It's especially reserved for catfish but I honestly eat it on any fried fish.

I was floored that I did not see hot sauce on the list. This should have been number one and maybe only second to lemon.

Fried Seafood + Hot Sauce =

I do not like tartar sauce and reserve cocktail sauce for shrimp.

Often I leave it plain but I like Tartar. But if its cooked in butter then plain it is.

For fish, just plain. I usually (99.99999999999% of the time) don't eat fish fried but broiled. That's Rockfish (striped bass) or salmon. Bluefish is smoked.

Resurrecting this since I got some smoked bluefish today. And blue crabs.

No blue fish here to smoke. They have all gone north for the summer. Come October they will be endangered again with my smoker. Spanish Mackerel too.
