Classic British 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.
