So, we had all the ingredients, now to start cooking!
Even though Tyler didn't say to, we soaked our potatoes in water for about an hour. I've had good luck with that in the past. These chips are very similar to what I make to serve with Barbecued Brisket. And also very similar to the French Fries the folks serve at my favorite hamburger place in the entire world, Denton County Independent Hamburger Company.
And Greta cut up the cod in small pieces so they would fit in our FryDaddy.
Then we fried the fish.Then we fried the chips once more--twice in the fryer really makes them delicious!
I mixed up the Tartar Sauce. I made it a bit differently from Tyler's recipe. Although I could find Capers at Kroger's, I didn't even know what at "Cornichon" was, as in Tyler's recipe. So I decided to just go with the way Texans make Tartar Sauce, mayo, sweet pickle relish and lemon juice. So come to find out, guess what a Cornichon is? A sweet pickle! Ha! So my Tartar Sauce wasn't so different, after all. Whew!
Here's our table. . .
And a couple of eaters (hubby was there too, not sure why I didn't get a picture of him!) The only thing we left out was the newspaper placemats! I thought of that, after we had everything on the table!
Everybody loved it--it was delicious! What a fun day making Fish & Chips! Many, many thanks to Greta's Pen Pal!!
Have a great Sunday, everyone! Lisa :-)
