Ingredients

How to make it

  • Wash the fish fillets and dry well. Set aside.
  • Preheat the deep fat fryer to 170C, 325F and the oven to 180C, 350F, Gas Mark 4.
  • Peel the potatoes then cut into 1/2 inch/1cm slices then cut each slice into 1/2 inch/1cm thick sticks
  • Dry the potato sticks well on kitchen paper.
  • Fry in the oil for 8-10 minutes without browning too much.
  • Meanwhile, place all the batter ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix together with a whisk until smooth. This should be a fairly thick batter otherwise it won't adhere to the fish.
  • Coat the fish fillets in seasoned flour, then dip into the batter to coat well. Leave submerged in the batter until the chips are soft.
  • Drain the softened (but not browned) chips and transfer to an oven proof plate. Cover with aluminum foil and keep warm in the oven whilst you cook the fish.
  • Raise the temperature of the oil to 190C, 375F.
  • Add the coated fish fillets directly to the oil without the basket being raised, and cook for 4-6 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fillets).
  • Drain the fish from the fat, raise the heat of the fryer to 190C, 375F. Place the fish on crumpled kitchen paper and put in the oven whilst you finish the chips.
  • When the fat is at the right temperature, return the chips to the pan, gently lowering the basket into the oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes until browned.
  • To serve - drain the chips well and serve immediately with the fish.

    How did I ever miss this great recipe. It reminds me of all the times in England I walked down the street with friends with a 'piece & six' in a grease proof paper bag & newspaper, sprinkled with vinegar & salt, from the local fish & chip shop. Do they still use that expression in England,(piece & six)? I can't wait to try it. & oh boy, Mushy peas, YUM. Thanks for taking me down memory lane. 5 forks

    I love British chips! With vinegar-they are the best I've ever had--too bad I would have to travel pretty far to get the real thing again.

    I love fish & chips, being from the east coast I would get them all the time, the Mid-West is not big on this type of fish frying, will give it a try, thanks for the post
