Calories 4849 kcal


  • 4 cups Vegetable Oil or Beef Fat (Enough to cover fish and chips)
  • 2 whole Idaho Potatoes (Large size, Cut into thick strips)
  • 1 lb Chatam Cod (or other local sustainable Cod)
  • 1.5 cups Cake Flour
  • 1.5 cups All Purpose Flour (Sifted)
  • 1 oz Baking Powder
  • 1 oz Salt
  • 1 Pint Beer


Prepare Potato Chips

  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into thick sticks ( see video for size) and set aside.
  • Heat 3-inches of oil to 325 degrees in a deep pot.
  • Put the potatoes in the oil.  Fry the chips for 2 to 3 minutes, they should not be crisp or fully cooked at this point.
  • Remove the chips with a spider strainer or slotted spoon, to a paper towel-lined platter to drain.
  • Crank the oil temperature up to 375F.
  • Meanwhile, clean and cut cod in half or three pieces( see video for sizing)Pat dry. Set aside.


  • Whisk all the dry ingredients together and then add all the wet ingredients just before serving so the batter stays nice and aerated because of the bubbles in the beer and the water.
  • *Mixing it too soon will make the batter heavy rather than light.
  • Spread some flour on a plate. Dredge the fish pieces in the flour and then dip them into the batter, letting the excess drip off.


  • Carefully submerge in the hot oil and carefully wave the battered fish into the bubbling oil before dropping in. Fry the fish and chips for 4 to 5 minutes until crispy and brown.
  • Remove with slotted spoon and set on paper towel.
  • Add chips back to the oil for another 4-5 minutes until golden brown. 
  • Remove with slotted spoon and set on paper towel.
  • Plate up. (see video to follow Jason's presentation)
