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!

This recipe didn't work out for me. The batter was way too thick so I ended up using almost double the liquid. It was the perfect amount of batter for the fish, but I had a lot of trouble getting it to stick to the fish. The fries never really browned, so I pulled them out and fried them again about 10 minutes later - they were amazing! Not sure what happened with the fish, but I will try it again later in a different pot with different oil to see if that makes a difference since the flavor was great. For ZWT8.

I halved the recipe and didn't have any problems. I loved the batter on the fish....very good. I soaked my potatoes in water with a bit of sugar added to it for an hour before cooking, then drained and patted them dry. Served this with a hearty dousing of malt vinegar and cooked up some hushpuppies to go with it. Delicious. Made for ZWT8.

Very yummy! I made as written, except that I blanched the fries before frying them. I really liked how light the batter was; just a thin coat on the fish instead of a thick and heavy layer. This was about the fish, not about breading :) I really enjoyed this meal, and I'm sure I'll make it again. Made for ZWT8

I used haddock for the fish and let me tell you, the crust was delicious and the fish was tender and so flavorful. The chips were a great addition, and we sprinkled Malt vinegar on them then dipped in ketchup. Kids went nuts over them both, and it was a great meal for us! Thanks!
