Friday Fish Fry

I have been waiting for two days for it rain.  It was predicted that it was going to rain starting yesterday right into Sunday.  I was going to hold off on water the grass seed and the veggie bed but I gave in and watered early last evening and this afternoon.  Come on rain! 

I made English style fried haddock and french fries for supper this evening.  Better known as ‘fish and chips’.  I used frozen haddock as it is quite difficult to get fresh haddock here where I live.  If you use frozen be sure to thaw it completely in the refrigerator before you use it.

English Style Fried Haddock

1 lb. fish fillets, (haddock or cod) cut into approx. 2 x 1 ½ inch pieces
2/3 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon vinegar (I used cider. Malt would also be good)
2/3 cups cold water
Vegetable oil for frying

  • Heat 2-3 inches of oil in a deep pan or fryer to 375°F.
  • Pat fish dry with paper towels.  Mix flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Mix baking soda and vinegar.  Stir vinegar mixture and water into flour mixture; beat until smooth. 
  • Dip fish into batter; allow excess batter to drip from fish into bowl.  Fry 3 pieces at a time until brown, turning once, about 3 minutes.  Drain on rack or paper towels. 

Beer batter is also delicious when used to fry haddock.

  1. Hi Liz I am back to the first post. I sent you a package yesterday it should be there between 2 to 9 days. More like 9 days I’m sure or hopefully less. I look forward to reading more about your yard I love gardening and I love all your ideas in the yard. big hugs


  2. Hi Liz: Oh that haddock looks and sounds great. Could you do it with other white fish, do you think? That Cordon Bleu sounds so good also. I hope your grass and veggies do their thing. Have a great weekend. HUGS


  3. YUMMY! May I have a piece? 🙂 I like “fish and chips”, but I don’t like to fry so I just wait to visit my Dad to have fried fish 😉 Haddock is very good, I’ve never had it before moving here.
    Have a happy weekend! Ciao! 🙂
