Fish and Chips

For the chips:

Cut a few russett potatoes into “blocks” then cut the blocks in fries

Put into a microwave safe bowl with 2 tbsps of canola oil

Microwave on high for 6-8 minutes or until just tender -stir halfway through cooking time

Rinse in cold water and pat dry

Heal oil to 375 – fry the fries for the first time about 6 minutes then remove

When fish is just done, return the fries to the fat and cook about 4-5 minutes or until golden and done – remove and season with salt

For the Fish:

the batter:

1-1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp cayenne – or more if you like it spicy

Mix well – remove 3/4 cup of this dry  mixture and put onto a large dish or a cookie sheet

To the rest of the dry mixture, add

3/4 can or bottle or beer and mix well – the rest of the beer is the for cook!

Have about 2 lbs of cod or haddock, cut into serving size pieces, ready to go.

When the oil is ready at 375 degrees, dip each piece of fish in flour, then in the batter, and then in the flour again.  Put into oil and cook approximately 8-12 minutes.

Remove and season with salt.
