I don’t normally make fish and chips, but every once in awhile I crave something I don’t usually eat. Today was one of those days. I have to tell you though I was a bit shocked at how expensive haddock was. If you’re watching your budget, perhaps cod would be a cheaper option for this recipe.
Anyway regardless of the price, fish and chips is very popular especially in the United Kingdom. They probably don’t use haddock. The fish is battered and deep fried. The batter in this recipe is made with beer, so it tastes amazing. It turned out crispy and you must squeeze lemon on it, it’s just fantastic. Like I said it’s not something I have often, since it’s not very healthy, but when you like a treat, it’s a good one.
I didn’t have a recipe for this so I found this recipe on the foodnetwork website, and it’s Alton Brown’s recipe. He’s one of my favorite chefs on that network, and everything I’ve tried from him is delicious.
As usual he did not dissapoint with his fish and chips recipe.
