Tartar Sauce:

Fried Whiting:

Fried Potatoes:


  1. For the tartar sauce: Combine the mayonnaise, relish, onions, lemon juice and some salt and pepper in a bowl; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  2. For the fried whiting: Heat the grapeseed oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the fish on both sides with the seasoning salt, black pepper and cayenne if using; then dredge in the cornmeal and shake off the excess. Place the fish, skin-side down, in the pan and cook until golden brown, 4 minutes. Flip and cook on the reverse side until golden brown, another 4 minutes. Remove to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
  3. For the fried potatoes: Lay the potatoes out on a baking sheet and sprinkle evenly with the seasoning salt, black pepper and cayenne.
  4. Heat the grapeseed oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes to the pan and cook until golden brown and tender, 4 minutes per side. Remove to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
  5. Serve the fish and chips, with tartar sauce alongside for dipping.
