Fish n chips for grown ups
Mmmm……fish sticks. If you’re over the age of 14, look away.
Do you even know what that fish is? What the coating is? How long the bag of fries has been there? Probably not.
Please just say no to mystery frozen food in your grocery store. Instead, give them the fish finger and make your own.
Fresh or frozen, get some white fish. Perch, sole, cod, whiting or whatever turns you on and cut into strips.
Now get yourself 2 bowls. One for a beaten egg and one for a bit of white flour (or rice flour for gluten-free).
Be prepared! Line your cookie or baking pan with parchment paper…preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Begin the coating process.
Lightly coat your fish strips with flour. Dip the fish in the beaten egg and then sprinkle generously with seasoning of choice. I used a mixture of sea salt, lemon rind and garlic powder but you could also use panko (Japanese bread crumbs or cornmeal for gluten-free). Place directly on baking sheet and cook until crispy.
While all of that was happening you were supposed to be roasting, baking, boiling or microwaving your potatoes.
I was. Big thick steak fries sprinkled with some garlic and sea salt. Bake in a 400 degree oven until super crispy.
That was easy. No mystery here.
