Battered Fish


Codfish was on special in the shops and we bought a pack.  What to do with it?  How about some battered fish with chips?

What you need:

Codfish fillets or any fish you want battered, cut into the size you desire

1 cup self raising flour

2/3 cup water

salt and pepper

What you need to do:

Mix the flour and salt together in a bowl.  Form a well in the centre and slowly pour in the water while whisking until you make a smooth batter.  Set aside for about half an hour.

Heal oil for deep frying until around 190 deg C in temperature.  Season the fish with pepper (and salt if you wish but remember that your batter also has salt).  Stir the batter (add bit more water if the batter is too thick), dip the fish in it and let the excess drip off.  Deep fry until crisp and brown, about 7 minutes depending on the thickness of your fish. Drain off the oil and serve with hot chips and your favourite dipping sauce.
