I rarely cook fish at home. I love to order it in restaurants, but I never feel I can do it justice at home. And I almost never deep fry at home. I don't like the mess and smell and danger, so I avoid it for the most part.
So what am I doing deep frying fish in my kitchen?
I can tell you it was worth it!
We had some wonderful beer-battered cod at Milos' Craft Beer Emporium this week that made me remember how much I love fresh fish when it's done well. Then I saw some lovely haddock on sale at my local market so I decided to give it a try.
Frying both the fish and the chips was a little too ambitious for me. The fish and fries cook at different temperatures, so I'd need two pots of oil. Instead, I used this smitten kitchen recipe for oven fries.
