Great flavor and easy recipe for fish and chips. The batter was wonderful and adhered beautifully to the fish (I used cod). I did double fry the fries to crisp them up more. Thank you for posting! Made for ZWT8 Great Britain.
Flavor was excellent, and we enjoyed the fish and chips both with salt and vinegar and with lemon and tartar sauce. Instructions for cooking the potatoes need some work; some suggest blanching, some suggest cold water soaking (which we did), neither was mentioned here. We had some trouble with batter not clinging to the fish, and DS suggested rolling the fish in flour before dipping in batter to help this. Made for ZWT8.
This was great. I tried baking the fish in butter instead of frying, which worked fine but looked awful so I didn't take any pics. :D For ZWT8.
Awesome and Easy. this recipe is mouth watering. some things I change are (depending on taste) trying different brews to use. I used yuengling the first try and it was very different than a pilsner or cheap beer. Think I will use a stout next time and up the beer for the batter and decrease the water. We shall see. Excellent recipe though!
There are not enough stars for this recipe if you like your fish and chips. Picky DH -- particularly picky about fish and chips -- absolutely loves this recipe. We found the batter to be so utterly delicious -- it really makes this dish! It also made the haddock melt-in-our-mouths. Made as directed except that DH likes to soak the fries in cold water before draining, drying, and frying; he only soaked these for about an hour -- he believes in soaking them for 12 hours! This is going directly into my Best of 2010 Cookbook. Thanks, CJAY! Made for the Unrulies Under the Influence, ZWT6.
