The GoodSpice meets the English kitchen. The English kitchen is not known for its culinary finesse, but one thing the inhabitants of this island understood very well: fried
food is simply good and comforting. Fish&chips is not a classic for nothing,
when made with a bit of love you will literally lick your fingers. In this recipe
I give the classic a subtle Good Spice touch. Flavours to be enjoyed by everyone
from young to old!
Ingredients 4 persons
- 1,2 kg hard-boiling potatoes
- 2 tbsp oil
- Salt & black pepper
- 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 800 gr can peas
- 1 tbsp butter
- Thin cut fresh mint (optional)
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1,5 tbsp of capers
- Pinch of black pepper
- Pre-heat up the oven to 200°C.
- Wash and cut the potatoes in slices. Cook them for 8-10 minutes. Then divide them across a wide oven tray. Cover with the oil and a tsp salt and pepper. Put in the oven for 15 minutes and 5 minutes on the grill.
- Put the mayo ingredients together and blend with a hand mixer. Set aside.
- Open the peas cans and pour in a small pan with a finger top of can liquid. Put on low fire and stir carefully from time to time. When the liquid is almost gone add and mix the other ingredients for the peas.
- Mix the flour, turmeric, salt and pepper for the fish on a plate.
- Pour the oil in a baking pan. Make sure there is at least a thumb deep layer of oil. Put on medium-high fire.
- Roll the fish in the flour mix. Cover all sides.
- Put some kitchen or toilet paper on a plate and put aside. This is for the oil to leak after the frying.
- Test the heat of the oil with a bread crumb. Throw it in the oil, when it bubbles the oil is hot enough. Fry the covered fish on each side for around 3-4 minutes or until you see that the fish flesh becomes a bit flaky. Let them leak for a minute on the plate with paper.
- When the potatoes are ready drip one tbsp of white wine vinegar over them.
- Serve the fish with the potatoes, mayo and peas on a newspaper and only use a fork and your hands to eat. A really fun and full-on British experience!
