How to make it

  • In one bowl, put flour, salt, pepper, baking powder, old bay seasonings and stir till well combined. Add Seltzer and stir - bubbles will form, stir batter and set aside for five minutes.
  • Slice potatoes into thin slices, then slice again to make 1/3 inch sticks.
  • Rinse potatoes and put into other bowl and add very cold water (even a few ice cubes) and set aside.
  • Take now rinsed fish and pat dry very well with paper towels - both sides. Cut fish cut palm-sized portions and place into batter, turn over so that each portion is well coated.
  • Put enough shortening into deep pan or wok as in my case, and let heat up to about 325-350 degrees.
  • Take out fish with tongs from batter and slowly place into hot oil.
  • Once one side is golden brown, carefully flip to fry the other side.
  • Take out fish and place onto cooling racks sitting on top of cookie sheets to further drain.
  • Drain water from potatoes, and carefully place into hot oil. Let brown, turning over as necessary.
  • Take out French Fries and place them on cooling racks as well to allow to drain, Add a little salt over French Fries.
  • I actually made mine into garlic/rosemary french fries by sprinkling a little freshly cut rosemary and garlic and tossing them with the herbs in a bowl.
  • Serve up your fish and chips with fresh cut lemons and tarter sauce.
  • Enjoy!
