Everyone loves some good old fish and chips, right? This battered fish batter recipe can be made in a few simple steps to make fish that has never tasted so good.
The sparkling water helps to create a crispy batter for fish, but it can be replaced with normal water. It just won’t be as crispy. It is important that the oil is the correct temperature as if it is too hot then it will burn the batter without cooking the inside of the fish and if it is too cold, then the fish will just end up being soggy instead of crispy.
This is the best fish and chips recipe you will find as it is so simple to make with a few basic household ingredients. I usually use this fish batter for deep frying and have never tried to bake it, but I suppose you could? Me personally, I am a fish, chips and beans kind of person but some people like to have it with mushy peas or even curry sauce. It is all up to personal preference. School dinners were the best when we used to have Friday fish and chips. Nothing will ever taste quite like it.
