Friday Fish & Chips

I saw the recipe for Alton Brown's Chips and Fish on Bridget's beautiful blog, The Way the Cookie Crumbles....I thought it looked FABULOUS.....and a little lightbulb went off right over my head like "*BING* You have an electric deep fryer in a box downstairs!!!" So, we broke it in using this recipe.

I used cod fillets and cut them into smaller chunks, made the french fries and got to work on the fish. It got stuck to the basket. I had to pry it out, but it looked promising. I know what to do next time to prevent that, but I guess I learned some valuable frying lessons this time around.

The taste was delicious...it was very time consuming though and not something I would make all the time, but I'm glad to say that I did make homemade fish & chips. Now, to work on airing out the condo from smelling like a greasy spoon!!!!

You can find the recipe that I used here...I followed it pretty much exactly, however I used Cod and omitted the Old Bay Seasoning, only because I didn't have any!

I also made my own Tartar Sauce...for this:

  • 1.5 cups of Mayo (I used Hellman's Light)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbs. finely minced onion
  • 3 tbs. jarred pickle relish
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried dill
  • Mix all together, chill in fridge until you are ready to use.
