Coat the fish portions in the flour, dip in the egg then coat in the crumbs. Pat them on well.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the fish and cook over a medium heat for about 5 mins on each side, until golden, then stand them up in the pan to brown the edges.
Warm the tortillas in the microwave or oven, then spread each one with 2 tsps tartare sauce. Pull apart the Little Gem leaves and add 2 to each tortilla. Slice the dill pickles lengthways into 4, lay on top of the lettuce leaves, then top each with a fish burger. Squeeze lemon juice over. Bring in the sides, then fold up the bottom of the tortilla. Serve in napkins.
