SERVINGS 4

Ingredients
  

  • 4 pieces of hake
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cup beer
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 potatoes
  • vegetable oil
  • salt

Method
 

  • Peel your potatoes, cut them in half and slice into 0.5cm chips. Place in a bowl of cold water to rinse off the excess starch and set aside.
  • For the batter: combine the flour and seasonings in a bowl. Crack in the egg and pour in the beer, whisking to combine. Only mix until the batter has come together. Set aside to rest.
  • Preheat your deep fat fryer to 180o C, this temperature will suit the chips and the fish.
  • Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and drain your potatoes.
  • Boil the chips in batches until they are still firm but a knife passes through easily. Drain well.
  • Fry the chips in the deep fat frier in batches until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towel and salt liberally.
  • Now take your pieces of hake and submerge them completely in the batter so they are evenly coated. Place in the deep fat fryer and fry for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Drain on paper towel before serving with a nice helping of golden chips
Chefs Tips
Recipe Pressure Point
The most important part of deep frying anything, especially a protein that is battered, is to get the temperature of the oil right. A deep fat fryer makes that easy due to its temperature regulation so you can cook every serving evenly to crispy perfection.
