When I stumbled upon this recipe, I had my doubts since for me it's always been beer battered/fried halibut for fish and chips. I tried this recipe anyway and I'M GLAD I DID!!! This is incredibly good! I used the melted butter recipe (as opposed to the beaten egg recipe), and that's what I'm doing today for dinner tonight. NUMMMMMMMMY!

I made this recipe for a dinner party last night. I put the fish on sliced purple cabbage, topped with homemade tartar sauce. Instead of using russet potatoes for the chips, I baked yam fries with curry powder. It was easy to prepare and was a huge hit. Thanks!

What a great recipe. I t was delicious. My kids ate it right up. I also passed this recipe on to my friend who has a wheat allergy. Finally she can have fish and chips again with no allergic reaction!
