One of the street food type meals that I love the most about London is their fish & chips. The best version of fish and chips was at a small shop in London outside Harrods that my sister took me to when I was visiting her. I just cannot seem to remember the name of it but let me tell you, it was one of the best fish and chips that I have ever had. They fried the fish to perfection. It was just the right amount of batter to fish ratio and the crunch was just right. I think I have finally found a recipe that takes me back to that shop without having to hop on an airplane. I am so excited to share this with you'll and I hope it brings you as much joy as it brings me and mine
Fish fillets ( I use tile fish )
Oil to fry
For The Batter:
4 tablespoons cornstarch
¼ cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup water
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg white
Blend all the ingredients very well.
For the sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chili garlic
1 tablespoon ketchup
For the chips:
Potatoes peeled and sliced to your desired width.
All purpose flour
Place the flour in a ziplock bag and add the sliced potatoes and shake so they are all coated with flour
Or you can take a shortcut and get the precut fries from Trader Joe’s
Heat your oil on medium heat till the oil is hot.
Cut your fish into the desired sizes and dip it into the batter mentioned above and place into hot oil. Do about 4 pieces at a time so you don’t overcrowd the pan. Cook about 5 minutes on each side or till done. Drain on paper towels
Now place the potatoes in the oil and fry till done. Drain on paper towels.
For the sauce. Mix all the sauce ingredients together and place it in a dipping bowl. Set your fish and chips with the sauce on a serving platter and enjoy. Please take a moment and rate this recipe and also send me your pictures of your remakes @sliceofgourmet on Instagram. I love seeing your work.
