Serves 4


Fish Fillets

  • 2 Pieces Fillets of white fish cod or haddock
  • 3/4 Cup Plain Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Cup + 2 Tablespoon Ginger Beer (about less than half the can)
  • Salt and Pepper 


  • 2 Large Russet Potatoes peeled and cut into medium chips size
  • Salt and Pepper 
  • Sunflower Oil 


Fish Fillets

  1. Add a little salt to the fish fillets and put them back in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  2. Add flour, cayenne pepper, baking powder, salt and pepper together in a bowl.
  3. Gradually add and stir in ginger beer using a whisk to the dry ingredients, creating a smooth and thick paste similar to the consistency of double cream.
  4. Set aside for 10 minutes in the fridge before frying.
  5. Heat a pan with sunflower oil deep enough to cover the fish.
  6. Take the fish and batter out of the fridge.
  7. Coat the fish fillets In a separate bowl with 1/2 cup of flour.
  8. Remove the excess flour from the fish, then dip the fish in the batter, coating it well.
  9. Fry on each side for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown.


  1. Peel potatoes on the sides, leaving the ends with the skin on.
  2. Cut the potatoes into 1/3-inch slices and then slice into 1/3-inch sticks.
  3. Soak potatoes fully submerged in a large bowl for at least 30 minutes up to 24 hours. This will help remove the excess starch from the potatoes and keep them from oxidizing.
  4. Heat a heavy stock pot
  5. Remove potatoes from the water, and pat dry to remove excess water.
  6. Add 2 handfuls of potatoes to hot oil. There should be at least 1-inch of oil above the potatoes.

  8. Remove potatoes, gently shaking off excess oil and let drain on rack.
  9. Repeat until all of the potatoes are par cooked.
