Fish and Chips- My Way!

October 10, 2016

Who doesn’t like a delicious plate of fish and chips?? It was my first try making this delicious English classic. It was a great attempt.. and healthier too.  I made a very flavorful batter and made my delicious oven fries. I paired it with a healthy tartare sauce and minted mushy peas… recipes to follow..

  • 4 cod fish fillets
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt
  • ¼ cup plain flour

Sprinkle the fish with paprika and salt. Dredge with flour and keep aside.

  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 small 8oz can club soda

Heat about 2 cups oil in a heavy saucepan.

Add the flour, baking soda, smoked paprika, salt, cilantro and green onions to a medium bowl. Slowly add the club soda, while whisking with a whisk until you have a thick coating batter- you may have about a bit of soda left over. Dip the fish fillets into the batter completely and immerse into the hot oil. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, depending on thickness of the fish. Take out the fish in a paper towel lined platter. Serve with hot oven fries.

Oven Fries

  • 5 to 6 medium yellow potatoes, peeled and cut into small wedges

Transfer the wedges to a medium saucepan, cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for a minute on a roaring boil. Drain the water and transfer wedges back to the saucepan and let them dry for ten minutes. Transfer to a lined cookie sheet.

  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Drizzle the oil and salt all over the potatoes and toss well with fingers. Bake in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes or till the wedges are golden brown. Take out and check for seasonings. Serve hot with fish.
