Ingredients

  • 1 ½ lb cod fillets
  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 qt vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Place potatoes in a medium-size bowl of cold water. In a separate medium-size mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Stir in the milk and egg; stir until the mixture is smooth. Let mixture stand for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat the oil in a large pot or electric skillet to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Fry the potatoes in the hot oil until they are tender. Drain them on paper towels.
  • Dredge the fish in the batter, one piece at a time, and place them in the hot oil. Fry until the fish is golden brown. If necessary, increase the heat to maintain the 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) temperature. Drain well on paper towels.
  • Fry the potatoes again for 1 to 2 minutes for added crispness.
