Whoa, Nelly, this is good! We went out for lunch the other day and one of my twins ordered fish and chips. It was delicious. Well, the next day both twins wanted fish and chips for dinner so I went over to Sobeys and picked up some cod loins. I prefer a loin as they are firmer, thick and delicious. I haven’t made fish and chips in a very long time. I don’t know why I don’t make them as it’s so easy. One thing I wish I could get in Ontario is pickerel cheeks from Manitoba. They are small and sweet and delicious. A great intro into fish if your kids are picky eaters.
I wish I had a lovely story to add like how we woke up really early and went fishing to catch our own fish for this recipe but I don’t! But as we prepare for our vacation this week, my fish and chips reminded me of the meal I had at Red Umbrella Inn and I think it was pretty spot on. I mean look at the fried goodness! Pat it and drain it on a paper towel and it’s comfort food, yeah it’s not “healthy” but your family will love it! The ice-cold water really makes the batter poof up in the hot oil.
For the fish batter (use it with shrimp too!)
I hope you’ll try it and love it as much as we do! Friday is coming up! Maybe you’ll have a Fish Fryday?
