Fish and Chips

A Classic English meal that’s enjoyed all over the globe in the form of quick street food

The first time we ever tried this was when we were visiting the UK pre Covid and that one was one of the best memories we have with the kids
Fish and Chips were one of the most convenient meals during times of travel and the kids loved the tartar sauce so I wanted to recreate this comfort food at home.
As always I have chosen finch lemon salt for my recipe !!!

Check out my instagram post and watch my IGTV video to see the whole video demonstration

This meal consists of fresh fish fillet coated in carbonated batter,fried to perfection and served with freshly cut thick crisp fries and a tangy tartar sauce that screams pickles or capers

I have used finch lemon salt for the batter and the tartar sauce
This pairs marvellously with the fresh fillet of barramundi and avoids too much water retention which causes the batter to run while frying the fillets
The best of both worlds : The lemon salt gives the perfect balance of tanginess and sourness to this dish or any dish for that matter
Such a great alternative and I see myself using this more often since now….
Try it and am sure you will be hooked !!!

Let’s Get Started

To make my version of this particular dish you will only need to go through a few steps

  • Step One : Season Fish Fillet
  • Step Two : Seasoned Flour
  • Step Three : Batter
  • Step Four : Deep Fry
  • Step Five : Bake(Optional)

Step One : Fish Fillet

I have used Fresh Barramundi Fillet from the middle cut company and I always choose them for my fresh seafood because they deliver the seafood fresh and not frozen.

Once fish is washed well make sure you pat them dry using a paper towel or kitchen napkin

Season with finch lemon salt or regular salt

Place on a tray lined with paper towels to absorb all extra moisture till needed

Step Two : Seasoned Flour

You could use plain flour to coat your fresh fillet or season it for more flavour.You can use either or all ingredients mentioned below depending what’s available

But most of the dehydrated herbs and spices are available at Finch

  • Finch lemon salt or regular salt
  • White pepper powder
  • Paprika
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Dried Herbs

Step Three : The Batter

You Will Need

  • One Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 & 1/4 Cup Chilled Club Soda
  • 1 tsp Finch Lemon Salt

Mix wet ingredients and dry ingredients to make a decently thick batter

Use a whisk to avoid a lumpy batter

Let this rest for at least 30 minutes till you get the other ingredients ready for making the battered fish fillet

Step One : Coat clean and dry fillet in seasoned flour

Step Two : Drop in batter

Let’s fry these fish filets now

Time to shallow fry

Cook both sides

Do not overcrowd the pan.This will not end well for the fillet.There might be breakage so make sure you space out well and let them crisp up on both sides

You don’t have to cook for too long because they’re gonna go into the oven anyway.

While frying just make sure you get the colour on the outside.(Approximately 3 minutes on each side)


Bake in a preheated oven at 180′ for 10-15 minutes

Let it rest for few minutes before plating up

We served it with home made baked potato fries/wedges and the most amazing home made tartar sauce using fish lemon salt

Creamy Nai Miris Sauce is also a fabulous combination if you like the heat with your crispy fish and chips.Await recipe in the next post :
