Mediterranean Fish & Chips with Homemade Tartar Sauce

– Mediterranean Fish & Chips with Homemade Tartar Sauce –

I have always had a love affair with fish & chips, there is just nothing better than crunchy battered fish that is dipped in tartar sauce and then followed with some french fries! This is British comfort food at its best. Now, even though the British claim origin to this dish, it is fully enjoyed throughout the entire globe. Having 2 kids, this is a dish I have to make often, my kids are absolutely in-love with this recipe, and it´s a great way to get them to eat more fish! This recipe of fish & chips with homemade tartar sauce is loaded with amazing flavors and it´s much healthier than the typical fish & chips that you will eat at a restaurant. The chips (french fries) in this recipe are baked, and the tartar sauce is made with Greek yogurt (happy waistline 🙂 ). Who said comfort food can´t be tasty and healthy?

  • 1/4 Cup Sunflower Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Freshly Cracked Black Pepper

  1. Pre-heat your oven with the bake/broil option to its highest setting
  2. To make the tartar sauce, finely mince 1 clove of garlic and add it to a mortar, then add 1 tablespoon of capers and using a pestle mash down on the garlic and capers until you form a paste, next add 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, 1/2 tablespoon of dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon of white wine vinegar, season with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, and mix everything until it´s well mixed, then cover the mortar with seran wrap and add it to the fridge
  3. Wash and pat dry 2 yukon gold potatoes, then thinly slice them into rounds that are about 1/8 of an inch in thickness
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and drizzle a little extra virgin Spanish olive oil on top of the parchment paper, then start adding the slices of potatoes on top of the parchment paper in a single layer, drizzle a little bit more of extra virgin Spanish olive oil on top of the potatoes, season them with sea salt and a hint of freshly cracked black pepper and them to the oven
  5. To make the batter add 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour to a bowl, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika, 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt, 1 tablespoon of extra virgin Spanish olive oil, 1/4 cup of water and a 1/4 cup of beer (I used Estrella Damn), now mix all the ingredients together until you form a creamy batter
  6. Heat a small non-stick frying pan with a medium heat and add a 1/4 cup of sunflower oil
  7. Season about 6 thin fresh cod fillets with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  8. Once the oil get´s hot, add 2 pieces of cod to the batter (one at a time) coat them well and add them into the pan, cook for about 2-3 minutes per side and transfer to a plate with paper towels, continue to cook in batches until all the fillets are done
  9. After leaving the potatoes in the oven for about 20 minutes remove them from the oven
  10. Divide the potatoes into 3 plates, then add two fillets of cod to each plate on top of the potatoes, add some of the homemade tartar sauce on the side of each dish and garnish with fresh parsley
  11. Enjoy!
