Absolutely fab! I use a beer batter when I make my mum's fish and chips, so I know how tasty it is! I made a full batch and also threw a few calamari squid rings in, so we had seafood and chips on one plate! I used 3 large spuds and about 12 squid rings for a super supper. Served the chips and calamari with mixed salad leaves and tartare sauce. Made for Make my recipe in the Aus/NZ forum, many thanks Kate!
