Yields: 5 servings
Cook Time: prep 20 minutes, cook 35 minutes, total 55 minutes
- 5 filets of Wild Alaskan Cod, cut into 2 to 3-inch pieces
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon old bay seasoning
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cup cold beer or carbonated water
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil for frying
For the chips:
- 3 large russet potatoes cut 1/4 inch thick slices
- 2 teaspoons of dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- Vegetable oil for frying
- Salt to taste
- Preheat a deep fryer filled with vegetable oil to 375°F. This can also be done in a shallow skillet over medium-high heat.
- Combine the flour, baking powder, old bay seasoning, paprika, salt, and pepper in a bowl and whisk together until well combined. Then stir in the beer or carbonated water until it forms a thick batter with no dry spots remaining.
- Add the cod pieces to the batter, making sure each piece is fully coated before adding it to the hot oil for frying. Fry for about 4 minutes until golden brown on both sides and cooked through (the internal temperature should reach 145°F). Transfer onto a plate or platter lined with paper towels when finished cooking to soak up any leftover oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt if desired while still warm from cooking.
- For the chips, add potato slices into preheated deep fryer filled with vegetable oil heated up to 350°F.Cook in batches as needed until golden brown and crispy on the outside for about 5 minutes per batch. Once cooked through, transfer the filets to a paper towel lined plate to soak up any leftover oil. Finally, sprinkle lightly with salt, garlic powder, and parsley while still warm from cooking if desired. Enjoy!
