Fish and Chips
500g fish fillets (cod or haddock)
200g all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Water, as needed
Oil, as needed
Peel and cut the potatoes into thin fries. Soak them in cold water for 10 minutes to remove excess starch, then drain and pat dry.
Cut the fish fillets into 5-6cm strips.
In a bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add water, stirring until a smooth batter forms.
Dip the fish strips in the batter to coat evenly.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the fish strips until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.
Remove the fish from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain excess oil on paper towels.
Fry the potato fries until golden brown, about 5-6 minutes, and drain on paper towels.
Serve the fish and chips with tartar sauce or ketchup.
