Nothing beats a plate of fish and chips while lounging under the hot summer sun. Pair it with Mission Estate’s Fete bubbly and you have yourself a perfect day. Read on for the unbeatable, classic fish and (kumara) chips recipe that’s sure to impress!
250g white fish
2 eggs (whisked with equal amount of water)
Flour to dust
Panko to crumb
Lemon pepper seasoning
Salt and pepper to season
Oil to fry
Heat oil in a deep fryer or frying pan to 185c. Put the flour onto a plate. Break the egg into a bowl and beat it an equal amount of water. Place the panko crumbs, lemon pepper seasoning, salt and pepper onto a plate. Cut fish into 60g pieces, coat each piece in flour and dip into egg mix. Coat fish in panko crumb mix and repeat process twice on each fillet for an extra crispy crumb.
To make the kumara fries, slice kumara into strips and fry for five minutes or bake in the oven at 200c for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
While fries are cooking, carefully place fish into heated oil for around 3-4 minutes until crust is golden brown. Remove excess oil and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with kumara fries, tartare sauce and garden salad.
