Free Recipe - Must Try Fakeaway

words Josie Broad

Fish and Chips seems to be a favourite amongst a few and we know deep frying can absorb one too many calories. 


So, we have carefully developed with our trusted nutritionist, Cecile Vadas, a healthier version of the famous, Beer Battered Fish and Chips. 


What you’ll need:


1/2 cup plain flour

1 1/2 tbsp rice flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup cold beer

2 cod fillets (400 grams), cut into 4 length ways

1/2 cup vegetable oil

3 starchy white potatoes, cut into thick chunks

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp dried or 1 sprig fresh rosemary



Tatare Sauce:

2 tbsp mayonnaise

1 tbsp sweet pickle juice

1/2 pickle, diced

1/2 tsp dill or oregano

1 1/2 tsp smooth mustard




Step 1

Mix all the tartare sauce ingredients together. Set aside.


Step 2

In a medium bowl, mix together the plain flour, rice flour, baking powder, salt and cold beer until smooth. 


Step 3

Pat the cod fillets with kitchen paper towel and place into the batter. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.


Step 4

Place the cut potato in a mixing bowl along with the rosemary, sea salt and olive oil. Mix well and place on a baking tray. Cook at 190 for 15 minutes or until golden, flipping half way through.


Step 5

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small pan for 2 minutes. Add the battered cod, cooking until golden before turning over and cooking for a further 3 minutes. Drain on paper towel.


Step 6

Divide the chips and fish between two plates. Finish with lemon and the tartare sauce.
