The Perfect Fish & Chips

Updated: Nov 4, 2021

Fish and Chips are a staple in every British family's home. And I still remember grabbing dinner with my family on Friday evenings. Bag of fish and chips, a wooden fork and extra to take home. That delicious malt vinegar on those chunky soggy chips! Dipping into those mushy peas and dunking into the tartar sauce. That's the perfect meal in my opinion. A balanced meal........ Just kidding. Now that I'm all grown up and have kids of my own, I now make it all at home, fresh. With Homemade mushy peas and even better, homemade tartar sauce too! Obviously it isn't the same as chips in a paper bag, but I'm sure the kids aren't complaining.
