I will help you make the perfect chips and batter plus give some more ideas on how to serve fried fish.

Fish cooks very quickly, so these fried fish recipes are all quick to cook. The preparation is quite straightforward too.
Some general guidelines for fried fish recipes
Use fresh oil - you can strain it after use and store it in a
sealed jar, but once it becomes cloudy, then throw it away and start
If you have a thermometer or deep fat fryer with a thermostat,
the oil needs to be about 190C or 375F for successful frying. The fish
then seals as soon as it hits the oil.

you're using batter - it will stick. Instead, use a slotted spoon or
fish slice to get your fish out once it's cooked.
