Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes in a medium bowl and cover with cold water.

  • Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper in a separate medium bowl. Add milk and egg; stir until batter is smooth. Let stand for 20 minutes.

  • Heat oil in a large pot or electric skillet to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Drain and pat dry potatoes. Fry in hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes; drain on paper towels.

  • Dredge fish in batter, one piece at a time, and place in hot oil. Fry until golden brown or internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F (63 degrees C); drain on paper towels. Monitor oil temperature, increasing the heat as needed to maintain 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Fry potatoes again in hot oil until crisp, 1 to 2 minutes; drain on paper towels.
