1. For the Pollock: Rinse, pat dry, cut into 4 to 5 oz. fillets. Combine pecans, cornmeal, flour, salt, sugar, black pepper and cayenne pepper. In a separate bowl, combine milk and egg. Dip each fish portion in milk mixture; coat with nut mixture in classic breading style.
2. Fry 1 or 2 pieces of fish in peanut oil for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 300°F oven while frying remaining fish—or fry fish fillets to order.
3. For the spicy tartar mayo: combine all ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate.
4. To assemble: Spread mayo on both sides of roll; place fillet on the bottom half. Top with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, onion, banana peppers and roll top.
