  • 1
    Heat the oil to 375ºF in a large heavy-bottomed pot, and preheat the oven to 225ºF.
  • 2
    Fry the potatoes in oil until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and sprinkle with salt if desired. Keep warm in preheated oven while you fry the fish.
  • 3
    While potatoes are frying, prepare the batter. In a medium-mixing bowl, combine self-rising flour, herbs and beer until a batter forms.
  • 4
    Pat the fish dry and season on both sides with salt and pepper and then coat the fish in the beer batter. Next, carefully lower the fish into the hot oil. Fry the fish, turning over frequently, until deep golden and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined sheet to drain, then to a baking sheet to keep warm in the oven. Fry the remaining fish.
  • 5
    Serve the fish and the chips with tarter sauce on the side, if desired.
