Now let's dive into making delicious fish and chips that will transport you to the bustling seaside fish and chip shop.
Ingredients: 3 pieces of fresh white fish fillets (cod or any other flaky white fish generally works well), 2 large Arran victory or Maris piper potatoes (peeled and cut into 3-inch-thick strips), 1 cup all-purpose flour for coating, baking powder, vegetable or sunflower oil (for frying), some cold lager or fizzy water, salt, pepper,
Let’s start with preparing the chips:
- Soak the cut potatoes in cold water and rinse the starch out until the water runs clear.
- Now heat some fresh water in a saucepan, add a pinch of salt and tip the rinsed potatoes.
- Bring to a simmer, then turn down the heat and simmer gently for 10-12 mins until cooked through.
- Turn off the gas and drain, then place on a tray in a single layer and let it cool down.
For the Fish:
- Prepare the fish by cutting the fillets into manageable portions. Pat them dry with a paper towel to remove the excess moisture.
Season the fillet portions with some salt.
For the batter: In a bowl, mix all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and fizzy water. Mix all the ingredients quickly until the mixture has a consistency of double cream. Don’t worry about a few lumps.
- Now preheat your Vinod's Zest Non-Stick Saucepan, adding enough oil to submerge the fish and the chips.
- Heat the oil till it’s 270°F/140°C and we can start frying the parboiled potato wedges until they turn crispy and golden. Remove and drain on a paper towel.
- Now bring the oil to 365°F/185°C. In the meantime, dip each fish fillet into the batter, making sure they are evenly coated. Gently place them into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pot.
- Fry them for about 5-7 minutes per side, or until they turn a beautiful golden brown. Remove and drain them on a paper towel.
Now that your fish and chips are cooked to perfection, it's time to serve them up. Place a piece of the crispy fish alongside a generous serving of golden chips on a plate. Sprinkle a bit of salt over the chips if desired, and don't forget the traditional touch – a splash of vinegar and a dollop of tartar sauce on the side.
This is the sign to invite your friends and family over, whip up a batch of fish and chips, and savour the delightful taste of this classic dish. Cheers to good food and great cookware!
