Fish and Chips

Post by Royd » Sat Oct 27, 2007 5:53 am

Here is is something simple and is also a British classic.

Fish and Chips, served with lashings of malt vinegar and salt.

It is the ultimate comfort food.

Get some good cod or haddock and enjoy !!!!


1 12 Ounce Can of Light Beer
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 Tablespoon of Salt
1 Tablespoon of Paprika
1 Cup of Flour

To start with, pour all the beer into a bowl. Add the Flour, Salt and Paprika into the beer, whisking until the solution is light & frothy.

Heat at least 2 inches of oil in a frying pan until the temperature reaches around 375F.

Dip your fish into the cup of flour, then the batter solution before lowering into the hot oil. Leave for around 60 seconds until properly cooked.

I've seen recipes for beer batter and they usually call for flat beer. Otherwise it foams all over the place.

Also, wouldn't you get better flavor with something other than lite beer?

My one and only visit to England had me living on Fish and Chips as well as bangers and beer.
