It does not get much more British than Fish & Chips - this recipe is a lightened up version but still packs all the flavour

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Peel potatoes; prick in several places. Microwave on high for 4 minutes or until tender-firm. Let cool for 5 minutes. Cut lengthwise into wedges.
  3. In large bowl mix half of the oil, cumin, salt and pepper, the full amount of the turmeric and garlic. Toss potato wedges in the mix.
  4. Arrange on greased rimmed baking sheet. Bake until crispy and golden brown, turning potatoes once or twice, for about 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in shallow dish, whisk together flour, paprika and remaining cumin, salt and pepper.
  6. Press fish into flour mixture, turning to coat; shake off excess.
  7. In large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; fry fish in batches, turning once and adding more oil if necessary, until golden and fish flakes easily when tested, about 7 minutes.
  8. Add spinach if you wish; cover and steam until wilted, about 2 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over top.

I had some problems with the fish that were my own fault so I will leave off stars this time. Chips: These were definitely a change of pace, If I make again I will sprinkle just was a little too much for me. Hubby isn't too keen on East Indian flavors so I don't forsee making them again. I do like those flavors though so maybe on a "girls night" I can try it again. Fish: The flavors were yummy!! Unfortunately, I was lazy and didn't completely defrost the halibut. When I tried to fry it, a bunch of liquid cooked out and the breading stuck to the pan. I even tried moving it to another pan but still had problems with sticking. Hubby and I agreed that we liked the flavors so we will probably try again. I may even try baking instead of frying.

Once in a while, one of our supermarkets has a half off seafood sale, and we rarely have fish, and seeing the previous reviews, I decided to try this one. I used catfish fillets seeing that around here the fish usually caught are frershwater fish. While I had mine with a cold beer, this really surprised me as the spices really bought this out as a wonderful meal. Nice to have tried this as it was very flavirful and easy to make. When trout seasons hits here in Lake Michigan, I will ahve to try this with some trout, or coho. Made for PRMR tag.

I was lost after roaming around ZWT until I arrived in London. I slipped into a quaint little pub looking to quell my hunger pains. I ordered the house specialty of fish and chips and they blew the lid off my finely-haired head. No telling what will happen next... ZWT#8~Great Britain/Ireland.
