Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
To Q, St. Paddy’s day reminds him of milkshakes, like the ones he made in preschool a couple years ago. To me, it reminds me of the times I’d go to the pub and watch an old friend and her celtic band. While there, my favourite thing to eat was fish and chips.
Last month, to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday, we decided to have a fish and chips party. She loves fish so it seemed like the perfect meal to celebrate her special day. My sister-in-law made an awesome fish ceviche, a recipe I’ll have to snag and share.
The batter was nice and crisp and the fish turned out amazing! We cheated with the fries and bought the coated ones that we love. Served along side tartar sauce and sriracha, we happily filled our bellies.
4 pounds cod
4 cups + 1 cup flour
2 TB baking powder
1 cup cold water
2 cups + club soda
Combine the flour (4 cups), baking powder, eggs, spices and cold water. Add the club soda until you get a nice thin batter.
Dredge the fish in the flour and then in the runny batter and fry until golden.
