The concept of fish IN chips sounds both delicious and ridiculous. Those incapable of thinking outside the box might even say the concept is an impossible one, but where hungry creative minds are at work, food miracles can happen.
How might this food creation work you ask? Well gather round and listen closely fellow foodies, because tonight you’re going to make fried fish so tasty, that your local chippy will become obsolete. You see, this is no ordinary fish, this fish comes encrusted in a beer battered chip crust, essentially cutting out half the work and giving you fish and chips in half the time, with double the taste. Food fusions for the win.
What You’ll Need:
- White fish fillets
- 250g plain flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 large white potatoes, grated
- 1 tbsp salt
- 500ml beer/ale
- oil, for deep frying
How You Make It:
- Mix together your flour, baking powder, salt and beer until smooth.
- Add grated potato and stir to incorporate.
- Add your fish fillets. Lift up with a slotted spoon, ensuring that you get a good amount of potato/batter along with it, then drop into oil preheated to 175degs.
- Fry for 5 minutes or until nicely coloured and super crisp.
- Eat immediately with lots of salt and vinegar.
