«Fish and chips» is a very popular meal in all English speaking countries, and most particularly in the United Kingdom. Whether in the form of a ‘take-away’ or eaten there and then, the British are so crazy about it that each year, they consume around 260 million meals of fish and chips, most often wrapped in the previous day’s newspaper and bought from one of the 8,000 fish & chips shops.
Its success is due to easily available ingredients, a preparation that’s very simple yet tasty and most importantly, affordability. You can make it at home with cod or haddock, and long potatoes, all deep-fried. If you’re like me and you want to cut down on deep-frying, I suggest that you bake it in the oven: the end result will be almost as tasty and definitely healthier!
