Fish and Chips

There are few foods that bring me right back to St. Patrick’s day and Irish pubs quite like Fish and Chips. The crispy and golden fried fish dipped in delicious tartar sauce. The fries soaked with malt vinegar. Mmm…. A little piece of Irish heaven.

I couldn’t let this year pass with satisfying my craving for this delicious meal. Of course the only way to make it even better is to make it homemade!

I have to admit that deep frying foods at home has always made me really nervous. The huge pot of basically boiling oil was super intimidating to me. But it was time to conquer my fear. Once I got all of my ingredients prepped, I was surprised at how simple it was. To make sure I was able to fully devote my attention to frying the fish, I decided to oven bake the fries. It was nice because I was able to have both things going at once and didn’t have to worry about keeping the fries warm, though I’m sure deep fried fries would be amazing. If you would like to fry your fries, check out Laura’s blog, Tide and Thyme, for those instructions.

  1. Yum. Now I’m craving this! I love the fresh, crisp coleslaw alongside it too. Love oven fries, and hate frying – so might just employ that strategy myself next time!

    • I feel like I’m always looking for an excuse to serve coleslaw. :) Oven fries made the process easier for me, I think. We loved the fish! Thanks for the great recipe!

  2. Jess, these photos are gorgeous. As if I needed another reason to want fish and chips!

  3. This is perfect for Lent.
