Fish And Chips

My husband is a crazy fan of fish and chips. When we dine out, I always choose dish from different cuisine, but he just has fish and chips in his tray, almost every time. As the only chef at home. I feel it is my mission to learn how to cook delicious fish and chips.

I tried this recipe:

For the fish fillet, I used tilapia. It’s red when raw, but white when cooked.

Mix 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup corn starch in one bowl.
For the batter:

Mix 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup corn starch, a little salt, black pepper and 1 tsp baking soda in another bowl. Then pour into water ( soda water is required in original recipe. But plain water also turns out well in my experiment) to make batter. Stop when the batter feels like pancake batter. I can’t tell how much water I added. I just stopped when I felt it’s ok.
Heat oil in a frying pan. I didn’t measure how high the temperature is. Drop a little batter into it, if the batter can hold together and you can heat the sizzling, I think it’s ready.

Coat fish fillet with dry flour mixture first. Shake off the excess. Then dip in the batter. And fry them till beautifully golden brown.

Serve with potato chips.

I just bought frozen potato chips from supermarket and fried them.

Add some cabbage with mayonnaise.

It immediately became one of my hunsband’s favourite dishes.

Fish & Potato Chips

My husband is a big fan of fish and chips. So I tried to cook this dish at home.
I cooked two kinds of fried fish fillet.
First, cut fish fillet into smaller size. And marinated with a little salt and black pepper.

1st. In a bowl, mix a small bowl of flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp vinegar and a small bowl of water. Stir well into batter.
Dip fish in batter. Then fry till golden brown.

2nd. Coat fish with a thin layer of flour, than egg and bread crumb at last.
Fry in oil till golden brown.
After tasting this two kinds of fried fish, I like the bread crumb one more. Because I think it tastes more crispy. But my husband loved them both.

Potato chips fried in oil for around 5-7 minutes, till they get golden brown.
