Fried Fish Fillets with Tartar Sauce

For fish fillets:
1 1/2-pound fillet of sole
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1-cup all-purpose flour seasoned with 1-teaspoon salt and 1/4-teaspoon black pepper
1-cup freshly made breadcrumbs
Vegetable oil for frying

For tartar sauce:
1-cup mayonnaise
2-tablespoon white wine vinegar
1-teaspoon dijon mustard
1/4-cup cornichons or sweet pickles, finely chopped
1-tablespoon shallot, finely chopped
1-teaspoon capers
2-tablespoon flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

How to prepare the fillets: Cut the fish into diagonal 1/2-inch strips crosswise. Roll them in the seasoned flour. Tapping off excess flour, dip them into the beaten eggs, then coat them in the breadcrumbs. Heat the oil in a large pot or deep fryer to 360 degrees f. Fry the strips a few at a time until lightly golden brown, about three minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve with tartar sauce. How to prepare the tartar sauce: Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Let set at least one hour in the refrigerator before serving.
