- 400g White fish (cod or pollack fillets, skinned and cut into bite-size chunks) shopping list
- sunflower or vegetable oil shopping list
- lime wedges, to serve shopping list
- FOR THE BATTER shopping list
- 200g plain flour shopping list
- caster sugar shopping list
- 330ml bottle full-bodied beer (any type) shopping list
- FOR THE DIPPING SAUCE shopping list
- 6 tbsp good-quality mayonnaise shopping list
- juice 1 lime shopping list
- handful coriander leaves, chopped shopping list
- 1kg potatoes (Maris Piper or King Edwards) shopping list
How to make it
- First make the sauce by mixing all the ingredients together, then set aside
- In a large bowl, make the batter by tipping the flour, sugar and some salt and pepper into a bowl, then gradually whisking in the beer until smooth.
- Heat the oil in a deep fryer or heat about 5cm of oil in a wok until a drop of batter sizzles and crisps up quickly
- Dredge a few chunks of fish in the batter, then deep-fry for 3-4 mins until golden
- Remove, using a slotted spoon, then drain on kitchen paper
- Repeat until all the fish is used
- Serve the fish with the sauce for dipping and lime wedges for squeezing over
- PERFECT CHIPS
- If you're looking for the perfect French-style chips, then try this (just arm yourself with a ruler...).
- Peel 1 kg potatoes (maris piper or King Edward are good)
- cut into chips 7mm thick. (Not 8mm that's too thick!)
- Wash the chips twice in cold water to reduce starch content.
- Drop the chips into vegetable oil heated to 130C until soft but not coloured (about 5 minutes). Drain and keep cool.
- Just before you are ready to eat, heat the oil to 200C and fry the chips until crisp and golden on the outside. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve within 3 minutes for maximum crispness.
