Fish ’n Chips

fish and chips

Being an Australian, I couldn’t resist including a fish ’n chips recipe. I came up with this playful twist, coating the fish in these iconic potato stick “chips.” I love that this recipe is baked, not fried.

This recipe can be prepared year round. Coat the fish and freeze raw, between layers of parchment. Defrost; bake fresh.

Cook’s Tip: Try various flavors of potato chips or potato sticks to change the flavor of this recipe.
