Tartar Sauce:


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the fish into 1/2-inch strips (you should get about 24 to 30 pieces). Season all over with 1/2 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper.
  3. Spread the flour in a shallow bowl. Beat the eggs in a second shallow bowl with a pinch of salt. Put the crackers in a food processor and pulse to mostly fine crumbs, about the consistency of panko with a few larger crumbs mixed in (you can also crush the crackers in a plastic bag with a rolling pin.) Toss the crumbs in a third shallow bowl with the dried chives, dried dill, dried parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and several grinds of pepper.
  4. Dredge the fish, a few pieces at a time, in the flour, then beaten egg letting the excess drip back into the bowl. Roll to coat thoroughly in the crumbs then place each piece on the prepared baking sheet, about an inch apart.
  5. Once all of the fish is coated, spray liberally all over with olive oil spray. Bake until the crumbs are crisp and golden and the fish is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove to a platter and serve with the tartar sauce and lemon wedges.

Tartar Sauce:

  1. Add the mayonnaise, pickles, lemon juice, parsley, capers, dill, and sugar in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate to allow the flavors to blend while you make the fish sticks.
