Recipe Notes

  • You can add chili powder or hot sauce for a spicier taste.
  • You can use other white meat fish such as tilapia, catfish, grouper, flounder, or other fish. Make sure you have filleted the fish.
  • Dry the fish first by patting the fish with kitchen paper. It would be better if you season the fish first so that the taste of the fish is not fishy.
  • I recommend sprinkling dry flour before coating the fish with the wet batter. This will help the batter stick to the fish more.
  • Pay attention to the temperature of the oil during the frying process. The oil that's too hot will make the fish wet inside, while if it's too small, the batter will be soggy. Make sure the heat is moderate.
  • I don't recommend reheating or make-ahead the fish and chips because the taste will be bad. The texture also becomes soggy.
