Fish Dinner

Mmm cod. Battered and deep fried. With onion rings and chips... Ok, the health nazis won't like it, but on the plus side the health nazis won't like it :-)

The batter is made with Fursty Ferret bitter and flour. Nothing else, well, bit of salt and pepper. Just enough to make the batter easy to use (I think the term "cover the back of the spoon" is often used).

I was using a small saucepan so I chopped up the cod fillet into similar sized pieces, and cooked the fillet in two batches. It was perfectly cooked with 4-5 mins, the steam pocket created by the batter around the fish steamed the fish wonderfully.

I had a bit left over so I sliced an onion and threw it in. I put the left-over batter in the fridge for tomorrow, I have another fillet to use up. Nice and healthy after footy :-)

Well, it may not be the healthiest way of eating fish, but really, its gotta be the most delicous way...and that counts for something, right?! :-) In my case, a little extra horse riding, and barn chores should burn off the calories, so count me in!

breadchick, I saved the rest for tonight, I have a new scotish ale I've never tried before to have with it. Sadly I found out to my cost that it all gets a little messy wrapping it in that ;-)

cat b, you're always welcome. I better upgrade the fryer ;-)

belinda, the gods must have been reading your comment. I got a right run around on the footy pitch tonight!
