Classic British Fish and Chips



english fish and chips.

Today I share with you this Classic recipe for British Fish and Chips, traditionally Fish and chips is served in a piece of newspaper. The key to successful a fish and chips is a crispy batter. I like this recipe because you end up with a really nice crispy batter but I don’t make it a lot  as I live not far from one of the top 10 Fish and Chip shops in Britain and you can’t pass the shop without buying their fish and chips because of the lovely smell.






4 cod fillets

Potatoes for chips





4 tbsp flour

1 tsp bicarbonate of Soda

100ml cold water

Juice of 1 lemon

Salt and Pepper





Make the batter: mix the flour with bicarbonate of soda, whisk in the water to make a smooth batter. Stir in the lemon juice. Season


Dust the cod in a little flour. shake off any excess.


Dip the dusted cod into the batter, shaking off any excess.


Deep fry the cod in hot oil until the batter is golden and the fish is cooked.



Serve with  chips and lemon wedges.
