Fish ‘n Chips

_DSC5504

Today I saw that cod was on sale at the market and decided to make something that has been on my “list” for a little while – Fish and chips. I love fish n chips and order it fairly often when I go out (not as much anymore because I can’t eat as much fried food as I used to). But, I have never actually attempted to make it before – until now. Unfortunately this meal took forever to make because I have a TINY fryer and could only cook a handful of fries at a time and one fish at a time. But all in all, it turned out pretty good, and I would try it again in the future.

This is a classic meal, albeit a heavy one. Hope you enjoy it though!
