Make your own fish and chips? Yes you can!
It's about time for a good fish and chips recipe! You know, one that’s super quick and easy, but also full of flavor.
Yes, it’s only mid-spring, but I clearly already have summer eats on my mind. I know you're thinking, "Seriously?" But don’t lie, you do too.
Hey, before we know it, May will be coming to an end, Memorial Day will be upon us, and you’ll be running around looking for your favorite summer recipes. So why not start piling them up now? To me, summer food is always good food, no matter what time of year!
I wanted to show you just how easy it is to make real-deal fish and chips – any night of the week. I'm talking 30 minutes and done.
Oh, and the batter you're going to be frying your fish in? It's oh-so special – an herbed beer batter that couldn't be better. The herb addition makes this recipe fresher and brighter!
Okay, so here’s what you do. Grab your ingredients.
Heat the oil to 375ºF in a large heavy-bottomed pot, and preheat the oven to 225ºF.
Fry potato sticks until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Keep warm in the preheated oven while you fry the fish.
While the potatoes are frying, prepare the batter.
In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the self-rising flour and herbs...
...and add beer until a batter forms.
Check out that delish herbed beer batter!
Pat the fish pieces dry and season on both sides with salt and pepper, then coat the fish in the beer batter.
Fry the fish a little at a time, keeping everything warm in the oven until you serve it.
Serve the fish alongside the chips and tarter sauce. Add some lemon and a beer and you've got a flavor-filled meal!
