1/5 Photos of Tyler Florence's Ultimate Fish and Chips
Jessica K's Note:
I got this off the food network site. I haven't tried these but my hubby loves fish and chips. He grew up overseas and used to be able to get them regularly. I showed him several recipes, including zaar ones, and this was the one he said to make!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- vegetable oil, for deep frying
- 4 large russet potatoes
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1 (12 ounce) can soda water
- 1/2 cup rice flour, for dredging
- 2 (8 ounce) cod fish fillets or 2 (8 ounce) haddock fillets, cut in 1/2 on an angle
- malt vinegar, for serving
- 1Heat 3 inches of the oil in a deep fryer. Or you can heat 3 inches of oil in a deep pot. Peel the potatoes and cut them into chips, about the size of your index finger.
- 2Put 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.
- 3Put the chips back in the fryer for 4 to 5 minutes until crispy and brown. Take out and drain.
- 4In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and egg. Pour in the soda water and whisk to a smooth batter.
- 5Spread the rice flour on a plate. Dredge the fish pieces in the rice flour and then dip them into the batter, letting the excess drip off.
- 6Now submerge the battered fish into the bubbling oil for 4 to 5 minutes until crispy and brown.
- 7Remove and drain the fish with the chips on paper towels; season lightly with salt. Serve wrapped in a newspaper cone with malt vinegar and/or tartar sauce.
- 8Tartar Sauce (about 1-1/4 cups): In a small mixing bowl, combine all tartar sauce ingredients. Chill before serving to let the flavors combine.
