English Fish And Chips


I was born back in Newfoundland, so sometimes I’ll have some recipes from back there.

Preperation Time: 30 min

Total Time: 45 min

Makes: 4 servings.

You need:

  • 2 lbs fish fillets, remove bones Red Snapper, True Cod or Halibut
  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 inches hot oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1-1/4 cup warm water
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Place flour in deep bowl. Make a hole in center. Add salt, water and melted butter. Beat well, let stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold into batter. Season fish with salt and pepper. Dust with flour and drop one by one into hot oil. Fry 3 or 4 minutes, turning with tongs to brown evenly.
  3. Drain briefly and serve with lemon slices and French fries.
