Fish and Chips

This is a good tasting, simple recipe for fish and chips. Serve with malt vinegar, lemon, or tartar sauce, or all three!


·         1 cup all-purpose flour

·         1 teaspoon baking powder

·         1 teaspoon salt

·         1 teaspoon ground black

·         Pepper to taste

·         1 teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning

1 cup milk
1 egg
1-quart vegetable oil for frying
1 1/2 pounds cod fillets or grouper if in season



In a medium-size mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Stir in the milk and egg; stir until the mixture is smooth. Let mixture stand for 20 minutes.

Dredge the fish in the batter, one piece at a time, and place them in the hot oil.

Fry until the fish is golden brown. If necessary, increase the heat to maintain the 350 degrees F. it’s about 4 to 5 minutes Place on paper towels. I use the fry daddy it’s quick and easy, or a skillet is fine too.

For the chips I use steak fries that I buy in the bag at my local grocery and follow their directions.
