Sempoi Crispy Fish & Chips

A simple & crispy batter. Great as normal fish & chips or for fish burger.

Estimated for 6 people:

1kg white fish fillet (of your choice, I tried with Ling Fish the result was very good)

- wash fish with lime / lemon juice & drain
- marinade with salt & set aside

1 3/4 cups self raising flour
1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cups water
2 teaspoon white vinegar
1 egg
coarse black pepper (depends on your taste)

- put flour into a medium bowl make well in center
- add vinegar then egg and whisk till well combined
- add water, whisking slowly (check to see not too diluted) till smooth
- add black pepper to taste
- set aside in fridge for about 10 minutes
- meanwhile, heat oil in deep frying pan
- pour breadcrumbs into a flat dish
- after batter is ready, dip fish into batter covering fully, roll on breadcrumbs
- make sure oil is really hot, reduce heat to medium & fry fish till golden brown

3-4 potatoes, cut into wedges or french cut

- rub potatoes with salt, arrange on baking tray lined with baking paper
- drizzle oil (best use olive oil) or any veggie oil
- bake in oven at 180'c for about 35 minutes or till well cooked
- steam potatoes in microwave till about soft (opt the salt)
- arrange on baking tray as above & drizzle with oil
- bake about 15 minutes

Serves with sour cream & sweet chilli sauce (try add grain mustard gives more flavor)
Serve also with salsa or any salad of your choice

Happy trying ... :)
