Fish N Chips

A staple food of the Great Britain. Easy and Simple and suitable just for the day when you want something refreshing without much fuss.

All you need is
Fish Fillet (King fish, Hamour, Butterfish, Cod or Haddock) - 1/2kg

For the marinade :-
Paprika or Mild red chilli powder - 2 tsp
Lemon juice - juice of one lemon
salt - to taste

Clean and pat the fish dry. Apply the marinade on the fish and keep it in the fridge for 15 minutes while you prepare the batter.

For the batter :-
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Cornflour - 1 cup
Baking powder - 4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Egg White - 1
Soda / Sparkling water - 1 can (enough to make the batter)
Yellow food colour

Mix together cornflour, all purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Add soda to this gently, mixing continually. Whisk the egg white until frothy but not too stiff. Add egg white and lightly mix in to the batter. The batter should be bubbly and light.

Heat oil in a wok. Dip each fillet of marinated fish in this batter so as to completely coat the fish. Place it in the hot oil and cook both sides for 3-4 minutes on medium low heat. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towel.

For a healthier version, you can place the fillets on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and cook 12-15 minutes until cooked through and golden.

Ideally served with potato chips and tartar sauce.
