Fish and chips are one of Britain’s favourite foods, we eat them at the seaside, for dinner from the fish and chip shop. Making battered fish at home is simple, quick and easy as you can see in this battered fish recipe.

Choose the freshest fish you can find, frozen is also fine but make sure it is thoroughly defrosted first. Prepare the batter and only dip the fish at the last moment before plunging into hot oil to fry. This way you will always have a light and crisp snap to the batter.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Batter resting: 30 minutes

Total Time: 58 minutes

Yield: 4 Servings


  • 2 oz/55g all purpose – plain flour
