For the fries
: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the potatoes in a medium bowl. Whisk
together the canola oil, paprika
, salt, pepper and orange zest
and toss with the potatoes to evenly coat. Place the potatoes in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast
until the potatoes are tender and starting to brown, 40 to 45 minutes.
Turn the oven up to 450 degrees F and continue roasting until the potatoes get crispy around the edges, 5 minutes longer. Reduce the oven temperature to 200 degrees F and hold the potatoes in the oven to keep warm while cooking the fish
For the beer batter: Pour the beer into a large bowl. Sift
the flour over, whisking in gently until just combined. Pat the fish dry, sprinkle on both sides with the House Seasoning and coat the fish in the beer batter.
For the cod: Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet until very, very hot. Remove the fish from the batter using tongs and allow the excess batter
to drip off. Place into the hot oil and fry in batches until deep golden and cooked through, turning once, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. While the fish is still hot, sprinkle with the salt, if using, and drizzle
with fresh lemon juice
