As far as changing the recipe or trying to do something exciting or new I have really left this the same as any old recipe you might find on the internet bar the odd detail. I have however exchanged couple of items: 1. The beer in the batter for cider, the sour apple taste goes excellently with white fish, and 2. I added mint in to the mushy peas to give it a wonderful fresh summery taste.
- Its important to not lose too many of the bubbles in the cider as this will make your batter very flat when it comes to actually frying them.
- I like to add fry some thyme or maybe rosemary along with my chips and fish it give them lovely aroma and flavour, and makes a nice garish for your chips at the end of cooking.
- Finally good fish and chips are always finished with strong malt vinegar! (the brown type)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon rice bran oil
