English Style Fish & Chips - to compensate for oil used in frying add approximately 1 tablespoon of oil to your log, depending on your serving size. Adapted from French Tarts recipe on Food.com - KB

Recipe Ingredients for Fish and Chips (please read description)

8 oz Tilapia, raw
3 oz Wheat Flour, White, All-purpose, Enriched, Unbleached
0.5 tsp Leavening Agents, Baking Soda
4 oz Ultra Beer
0.17 tbsp Lemon Juice, Canned Or Bottled
1 Potato large (3" to 4-1/4" dia) Potatoes, Russet, Flesh And Skin

Recipe Directions for Fish and Chips (please read description)

  1. Heat fat up in a chip pan or automatic deep fat fryer - mine has a chip setting which is 374F.

  2. Peel the potatoes and cut into chunky sized chips. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

  3. Fry chips for about 3 minutes until soft but NOT coloured. Drain and shake well and set to one side.

  4. Put some flour onto a plate. Dredge the fish fillets in the flour thoroughly - this is VERY important, it stops the batter sliding off when fried! Leave the fish fillets in the flour whilst you make the batter.

  5. Some people say you should make the batter at least one hour before - I have found little difference - so make it before if it is convenient or now!

  6. Put flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and pepper into a large roomy bowl. Add the beer gradually, stop when you have a thick coating type of batter.

  7. Whisk thoroughly until it is smooth and there are no lumps.Add the lemon juice OR a splash of malt vinegar if desired. Mix thoroughly again.

  8. Adjust deep fat fryer to fish frying temperature of 320F.

  9. Take one fillet of fish at a time and holding it by the tail or thin end (!) swirl it around the batter until well coated - plunge into hot fat immediately. As soon as it has crisped up and set, add your other fillets one at a time, taking out the first ones as they cook - about 6 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness. Place onto a tray and keep warm in the oven.

  10. Turn up the heat setting to 374F again and cook your chips until golden and crisp.

  11. Serve on plates or newspaper with salt & vinegar!
