miFoodandDrink's picture
  Self rising flour 110 Gram
  Ale 200 Milliliter (Real Ale, Such As Fursty Ferret)
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Potatoes 2 Kilogram, peeled and cut into wedges
  Plain flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (For Dusting)
  Oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Frying)
  Pollock 4 , cut into approx 150 gram portions – ask your fishmonger, rinsed and patted dry (Fresh)
  Malt vinegar 1 Teaspoon (For Serving)
  Lemon wedges 2 (For Serving)

1 To make the batter, beat together the self-raising flour and beer. Season and set aside for around 30 minutes.

2 Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas 7. Blanch the potatoes in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain, then toss in 2 tbsp oil and season. Spread out on a baking tray and bake for 40 minutes until golden and fully cooked, turning half way through the cooking time.

3 Meanwhile, sift plain flour onto a plate. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. It is ready when a bit of the batter mixture sizzles when it is dropped in.

4 Dust a fillet with the flour and dip in the batter, using a fork or tongs. Carefully place into the oil and fry for 8 minutes until cooked through. Drain well on the kitchen paper. Cook the remaining fish fillets, keeping the cooked
ones warm in the oven.

5 Serve the fish with the potato wedges, salt and vinegar, and lemon wedges.

In this video, chef Peter Sidwell shows how rhyme can help cook the classic British dish, fish and chips.
