The Ultimate Kiwi Beer Battered Fish

Serves: Time: 00:40 Skill:
For the fish
  • 1 ½ cups self raising flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp malt vinegar (we love DYC)
  • 1 egg, whisked until fluffy (we love Woodland)
  • 300ml beer, very cold (we love Emerson’s Pilsner)
  • 4 fish fillets, fresh
  • 1 ½ L vegetable oil, for deep frying (we love Olivado Avocado Cooking Oil)
  • lemon, to serve
  For the chips 
  • 500g potatoes, cut into chunky fries (we love Wilcox Vivaldi)
  • A drizzle Avocado Cooking Oil (we love Olivado)
  • Sea Salt
  For the Mushy Peas 
  • 1 1/2 cup of frozen peas
  • ½ tsp salt
  • A handful of mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp of avocado cooking oil (we love Olivado)
 
  1. For the fries: Heat oven to 200C and line a flat baking tray with parchment
  2. In a bowl, lather the fries in salt and oil. Spread out on the baking tray and bake for 30-40 minutes until golden and crunchy making sure to flip them over half way.
  3. For the peas: Boil the peas for 5 minutes and drain. In a food processor, blitz together all of the mushy pea ingredients until pureed with a little texture.
  4. For the fish: Heat the avocado oil in a deep pot or deep fryer to 180C. Have your fish fillets, coating flour, tongs and a tray lined with paper towels ready to go.
  5. Place the self-raising flour and salt in a bowl, make a well and pour the egg into the centre, pour over the beer, add the malt vinegar (this will make the batter extra crispy!) and whisk until a smooth batter forms.
  6. Dip the fillets one at a time into the flour, shake off excess then dip into the batter. Carefully lower it into the hot oil, and drag it backwards and forwards for a few seconds before letting it go — this will help to seal the batter.
  7. Cook for 2-4 minutes, depending on the thickness of each fillet, until crisp and golden. Lift out of the oil and drain on paper towels.
  8. To assemble: Season with salt and serve with lemon, mushy peas and fries. Devour while hot!
