Tuesday's Meal: Guinness Battered Fish and Chips

Chef Steve Constantine from H-E-B Cooking Connection shares a classic recipe with a Irish twist.

The recipe is as follows:

Ingredients

For Chips:

Safflower oil

4 Large russet potatoes

Kosher salt

For Fish:

2 Cups Flour

1 Tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper

A dash of Old Bay Seasoning

1.5 14oz cans of Guinness, cold

1.5 Lbs of Whitefish (cod, haddock, tilapia ect.) cut into 1-2 inch strips

Cornstarch, for dredging

Garnish:

1 jar Gaidos Tartar Sauce

1 bottle Heinz Malt Vinegar

Method

-Heat oven to 200 degrees F.

-Heat the safflower oil in a 5-quart Dutch oven over high heat until it reaches 320 degrees.

-Cut the potatoes into wedges with the skin on. Place in a large bowl with cold water; set aside.

-In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and Old Bay seasoning. Whisk in the beer until the batter is completely smooth and free of any lumps.

-Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Note: The batter can be made up to 1 hour ahead of time.

-Drain potatoes thoroughly, removing any excess water. When oil reaches 320 degrees, submerge the potatoes in the oil.

-Working in small batches, fry for 2 to 3 minutes until they are pale and floppy. Remove from oil, drain, and cool to room temperature.

-Increase the temperature of the oil to 375 degrees. Re-immerse fries and cook until crisp and golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and drain on roasting rack.

-Season with kosher salt while hot and hold in the oven.

-Allow oil to return to 350 degrees. Lightly dredge fish strips in cornstarch. Working in small batches, dip the fish into batter and immerse into hot oil.

-When the batter is set, turn the pieces of fish over and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Drain the fish on the roasting rack. Serve with malt vinegar & Gaidos Tartar Sauce
