Hey folks. This may be my quickest post ever. It’s 3 am and I need to go to bed as my brother is blowing into town tomorrow for a visit. So if you don’t see me commenting on your lovely blogs for a few days, never fear, it’s temporary. He’s only here a short time so want to fit in some quality time when we can. I will try and visit but won’t be as stalky as I usually am.
So here it is. Right to the point. Anyone can make this. Super easy and so good even Kiana liked it. She went back for seconds and has already asked me to make it again. So huge hit here tonight when mini-me likes it.
Kim’s Home Made Fish N Chips:
1 x 400 gram package of haddock, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons flour
Pancake batter mixed with Perrier fizzy water (carbonated spring water) instead of regular water or milk
Preheat your oil, I used a deep fryer at highest temp. Any oil is fine.
Mix up your pancake batter ahead of time. I used 1 cup of dry pancake mix to 3/4 cup perrier water. Set aside.
Cut up haddock into pieces. Set aside.
In a bowl mix flour, salt and pepper.
Dredge your fish in the flour mixture.
Dip fish in pancake mix and shake off excess.
Drop in oil and cook until golden brown. Should take about 4 to 6 minutes.
Drain and serve.
5 to 6 russet potatoes
Oil, you could use canola, vegetable or corn
Preheat oil in fryer.
You can soak potatoes for 30 minutes in water. I usually don’t.
Peel and cut up your fries.
Cook them in fryer for about 3 to 4 minutes.
Pull them up and drain them and let sit for at least 2 minutes. (I usually put my second load in and let the first load sit, you are not cooking them fully, this is a double fry method.)
Dunk them back down and cook for another 3 or so minutes until they are golden brown.
Remove, drain and serve.
So ya, I realize I suppose to be trying to watch what I eat and lose weight. But it was holiday today so I was a little bit bad. Enjoyed it immensely.
Clean your oil in between dishes. I didn’t clean it up and ended up with bits of fry pieces on the fish. No big deal unless you like your food pretty and less barnacle-y looking.
Toodles and smoochies. xx
ps- there will be apple crisp soon. Scott loves it and I didn’t get a chance to make it last time he was here cuz Ginger (horse) was pretty sick. So if you like apple crisp be sure to check back in a couple days.
