Classic Fish and Chips Method

1. First, peel your potatoes.

2. Now fill a large bowl with cold water. You’ll be adding your potatoes into here soon. This will help get rid of some of the starch, which will make for crispy fries!
3. Slice your potatoes into thirds lengthwise, then cut each slice into thirds lengthwise again. This method will give you nice, homestyle-type fries.
4. Place your potatoes in the cold water and mix them up using your hands to get rid of the starch.
5. Now move your potatoes into a medium to large size pot. Over medium heat, bring the water to a boil. Once the potatoes are soft enough to easily prick with a fork, drain the water from the pot using a colander.
6. Put some paper towels on a baking tray and place the boiled potato slices on top. Lay them out so they are flat, and place them in the fridge for an hour to overnight.
7. Now you’ll make your batter. In a large mixing bowl, add 1 cup flour, 1 cup soda water or beer, 1/2 tbsp baking powder and 1 tbsp honey. Whisk the batter briskly to break up any clumps. Season with salt and pepper.
8. Now you’re going to fry your chips. Fill a pan halfway up with oil (canola oil was used in the video), and heat it to about 350 Fahrenheit or 175 Celsius.
9. Now you’ll add your potato slices. Add them to the pot in small batches, so as to not overcrowd the oil and cause spills or bubbling over.
10. Once the potatoes are crisp on the outside, take them out from the oil using a slotted spoon. Lay fries out on a paper towel to cool.

11. Now you’ll fry your fish. Add some flour into a bowl or plate and coat each filet in it before dipping it into your prepared batter, being sure to fully coat it.
12. Slowly and carefully put the fish into the oil, being sure to lay it away from yourself so you don’t splash yourself with hot oil. Fry your fish for 4-5 minutes or until the batter is golden brown and crispy.
13. Remove the fish from the oil and let it drain on some paper towel.
Now you can serve it up with your fries! Enjoy!
