Home Made Beer Battered Fish And Chips

Updated on November 2, 2015

Fish and chips is well known in England.Fish and chips is a take away food which consists of battered fish and chips (french fries) sometimes accompanied by mushy peas and tartar sauce and served in newspaper.British chips are traditionally twice as thick as an american french fries sold by most major fast food restaurants.Fat soaks in a potatoes so the thicker the potatoes the more fat is soaked in because it takes longer to cook that's why american's make there chips thinner.I have provided a recipe for baked chips as it is better for your health and less calories.England fish and chip shop generally use a simple water and flour batter with a little baking soda and a little vinegar to create that lightness to the batter.Other recipes may use beer or a milk batter where these liquids are often substitutes for water. The carbon dioxide in the beer lends a lighter texture to the batter. Beer also results in an orange-brown color.I have used cod in this recipe but you can also use haddock,catfish,flounder,walleye and brown trout.Fish-and-chip shops traditionally wrapped their product in newspaper, or with an inner layer of white paper (for hygiene) and an outer layer of newspaper this helps keep it warm and absorbs the grease.
