fish and chips 1

Ingredients for Fish

-3/4 lbs of Cod

-appox 5 oz of Zatarain’s Fish Fry (half the bag ish)

-approx 1 inch high of vegetable oil in skillet of choice

Ingredients for Chips

  • 1-1/4 pounds russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup water, or as needed
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil for frying


-heat oil to approx 350F in skillet (we put the oil on medium heat)

-wash fish off in cold water thoroughly & drain off excess moisture

-cut fish into 1/2 inch wide strips and season with salt and pepper to taste

-pour Zatarain’s fish fry into bag along with fish (seal bag) and shake it up real good so the fish is coated evenly =)

-fry a few pieces of fish at a time until batter is light golden brown–remove and drain on absorbent paper (paper towels work fine)


this recipe he found on all Homemade Crispy Seasoned Fries!!

  1. Slice potatoes into French fries, and place into cold water so they won’t turn brown while you prepare the oil. The longer the cold potato bath the better!!
  2. fish and chips5
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While the oil is heating, sift the flour, garlic salt, onion salt, regular salt, and paprika into a large bowl. Gradually stir in enough water so that the mixture can be drizzled from a spoon.
  4. fish and chips 7
  5. Dip potato slices into the batter one at a time, and place in the hot oil so they are not touching at first. The fries must be placed into the skillet one at a time, or they will clump together. Fry until golden brown and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.
