    Rita~'s Note:

    Use Cod a nice hearty white fish! Make sure the potatoes are towel dried before frying. You can save time and fry in 2 pans.I like the malt vinegar, but you can serve with tartar sauce. If you have left over batter dip a sliced sweet onion and fry (Onion Rings) ** Thes are accepted for the Cajun Region based on the seasonings used as they are very indicative of the way Fish and Chips is made in Louisiana**

      After experiencing the same issues with another Fish and Chips recipe, we made two adjustments to this: first, we rolled the fish pieces (cod) in dry flour before the batter dip, which helped it cling; second, we blanched the fries: partially cooked them and left them to stand before deep-frying again. We enjoyed these with tartar sauce and malt vinegar; the final result was terrific! Nice crispy crust and great flavor. Made for ZWT8.

      Good fish and chips. I didn't have any problems with the batter and they were really good with lots of malt vinegar and tartar on the side. Thanks Rita for a nice meal. Made for ZWT8 - Great Britain.

      Great batter! It clings nicely to the fish and produces a nice crispy coating. I actually cut my fish into cubes for the kids, and they loved it. We served it with garlic mayo. Thanks for a definate keeper!
