    .OOOOP's I forgot to say " Home made" Haddock Chips and Mushy Peas cooked today in France...:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1

    The plate is 12" long so they are a good size fish.....and not coated in a thick over coat...the southerners call BATTER.... like they coat there fish just to hide the sprat in side the batter masquerading as a Haddock or Cod fillet :

    That looks delicious Mel. You should be on Master Chef, it's about time that they cooked up some decent grub on that programme.

    Hi Mel,
    I am a Lancastrian and proud of it but the best fish and chips in the world are made in Yorkshire with lovely fresh fish straight from Grimsby, potatoes from Lincolnshire and cooked with love east of the Pennines.
    I am drooling just thinking of the taste.

    Well Mel, next time we're over - you get an extractor fan sorted out for Chris's sake and we'll replenish your stocks of dripping and bring you a nice cod fresh from Calais fish market so that you can make a proper fish supper... :thumb:

    I feel a North - South spat coming on... :Wink:

    If there's any batter left I usually make some lovely onion rings too.:BigGrin:

    I don't mess about with water and bicarbonate, crack a tinnie, sup half and bang the rest in the flour, it makes a lovely crisp batter:Wink:
