Ingredients

  • 2 litres vegetable oil for frying
  • Salt
  • 4x 200g fillet pieces of Haddock or Cod, skin on and pin boned
  • 1 cup plain flour

  • 1,1kg floury potatoes - peeled and cut into large chips

Preparation

Pour all the vegetable oil into a deep pan or deep fat fryer, heat to 150°C.
