Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup gherkins
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 3/4 cup prepared mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Canola oil, for deep fryer
  • 2 cups flour, plus more for dredging
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Turmeric
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 pounds fresh cod
  • 2 pounds large potatoes

Directions

Dice the gherkins into small squares, then finely chop the capers; add the parsley and mix together in a bowl. Add the mayonnaise and lemon juice and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill.

Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer to 350 degrees F. Mix the flour, baking powder, desired amount of turmeric, salt and pepper and vinegar in a bowl. Slowly add the water, whisking until the batter is smooth and the proper consistency. 

Put flour in a pie plate or shallow bowl. Dredge the fish in the flour, then dip into the batter. Add the fish to the oil and fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes. 

Peel the potatoes then cut into large potato strips. Fry the French fries at 350 degrees F until golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 

Serve fish and chips hot with tartar sauce and any other condiments you like, such as hot pepper sauce, ketchup or the like.
