  • 4 large fillets of cod or haddock
  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into thick chips
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup cold beer or sparkling water
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Salt to taste
  • Lemon wedges and tartar sauce for serving


  1. Preheat your deep fryer or a large, deep pan of oil to 350°F (175°C).
  2. For the batter: Mix 1 cup of flour with baking powder and a pinch of salt. Gradually whisk in the cold beer or sparkling water until smooth.
  3. Dust the fish fillets lightly with flour, then dip into the batter, letting any excess drip off.
  4. Carefully lower the battered fish into the hot oil. Fry for about 6-8 minutes until golden and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.
  5. For the chips: Fry the cut potatoes in the oil until golden and crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with salt.
  6. Serve the fish and chips hot with lemon wedges and tartar sauce.


  • Keep the beer or sparkling water cold for a lighter, crispier batter.
  • You can adjust the seasoning of the batter to your taste, adding herbs or spices.
