  • Learn how to make Crispy Beer Batter Fish! All beer batter fish recipes are crispy right out of the fryer, but after a few minutes, most turn soft, and soggy, but that’s not a problem here. By following a few simple steps, your last bite should be just about as crispy as your first. Potato chips sold separately. Visit for the ingredients, more information, and many, many more video recipes. I really hope you enjoy this easy Crispy Beer Batter Fish & Chips recipe!

    Your Bonkers! 🤣🤣🤣
    The fish looked so fine, I never like vinegar on my chips as it makes them soggy but I do love my Mushy Peas 😋😋😋

              I was enjoying this until he poured Fosters into the mix. Please use better beer next time. No one in OZ drinks that stuff. Try Coopers Ale instead if you can get it. Makes a much nicer batter.

                                                    You should serve them with chips. Not French fries. Not crisps. Proper fat, chunky chips. You Americans need to learn the difference because they're amazing.

Hahahaga 😂 Oh, the newspaper is a no no, too. Even 50 years ago, there would have been a sheet of grease proof paper between the fish and chips and the newspaper! The newspaper didn't ACTUALLY touch the grub! Us English do have standards, you know! Wonderful videos, Chef!

Also, you don't get the lemon and tartare in 'fish and chip shops' - take out food, but you definitely do if you go to a restaurant or bar. Lastly, in Edinburgh (and only in Edinburgh!) you don't get salt and vinegar, you get salt and sauce. And the sauce is special 'chippy sauce', made by each shop and not available elsewhere. I know not why!

                                                                                  • Jonny Lumberjack
