DIRECTIONS

  • Cut potatoes lengthwise into ½-inch strips.
  • Heat oil (2 to 3 inches or enough to cover) in deep fryer or Dutch oven to 375 degrees.
  • Fill basket one-fourth full with potatoes. (I don't have a basket - I use a Fry Daddy and it works fine. Just be sure and put the chips in one at a time so they don't stick to each
  • other.) Skip the next step if you're not using a basket.
  • Slowly lower basket into hot oil. (If oil bubbles excessively, raise and lower basket several times.) Use a long-handled fork to keep potatoes separated.
  • Fry potatoes 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown; drain on paper towels.
  • Place potatoes in single layer on cookie sheet and keep warm.
  • Repeat with remaining potatoes.
  • Cut fish filets into 2 x 1/-1/2-inch pieces. Pat dry with paper towels.
  • Mix flour and salt.
  • Mix baking soda and vinegar.
  • Stir vinegar mixture and water into flour mixture; beat until smooth.
  • Dip fish into batter, allowing excess batter to drip into bowl.
  • Fry 4 or 5 fish pieces at a time (do not use basket) about 3 minutes, turning fish once, until brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • Set oven control to broil. Broil potatoes 6 inches from heat 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp.
