How to make it

  • For Tartar Sauce:
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Chill before serving to let the flavors marry. Yield: about 1 1/4 cups
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • For Fish and Chips:
  • Heat 3-inches of the oil in a deep fryer to 325 degrees F. Alternately, heat 3-inches of oil in a deep pot.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into chips, about the size of your index finger. Put the potatoes in the oil. Fry the chips for 2 to 3 minutes; they should not be crisp or fully cooked at this point. Remove the chips with a spider strainer or slotted spoon, to a paper towel-lined platter to drain.
  • Crank the oil temperature up to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and egg. Pour in the beer and whisk to a smooth batter. Spread the flour on a plate. Dredge the fish pieces in the flour and then dip them into the batter, letting the excess drip off.
  • Carefully wave the battered fish into the bubbling oil before dropping them in Fry the fish 4 to 5 minutes until crispy and brown. Remove the basket and drain the fish on paper towels; season lightly with salt.
  • Add the pre-cooked fried to the oil and fry until crisp and golden brown.
  • Serve with lemon, tartar sauce and ketchup... Crispy Yummy!

    Being so close to the ocean, fish is plentiful and good. It's been a long time since I have indulged in these, but "what the heck" we need to indulge once and a while. Thanks for the recipe.

    Thanks Luisa for this one. A friend of mine has been hungry for Fish & Chips for awhile now.
    Although I don't normally fry anything, I might make an exception with this one.

    Happy Easter to ya'll!
