Fish and chip

I don't know about yours but mine love fish and chip.   I don't really know the origin of fish and chip but before our kids came along, we too loved fish and chips.  I remembered while touring round New Zealand, we even chanced upon one that sells deep fried scallop in Omaru and it was so good.  During that time, it was unheard of in Singapore.

During our last holiday in the States, I also had a chance to eat deep fried scallops again.  Though it was so fresh and good but I still can't forget those that we had in Omaru.  I think I want to replicate it some day at home but first I need to get fresh scallops.

Today I had chosen Alton Brown Beer batter fish and chip for our dinner.  The batter fried beautifully and it has a nice crisp as well.  



My family said it was good but personally I think I should work on that baking powder.  

I took the lazy way to prepare the fries.  I bought a bag of frozen but I just couldn't resist the smiley face ones.  In the end, we had this for dinner.  It definitely brought a smiley face on my little one.

The salad was a simple of cabbage and carrot tossed in thousand island with mayonnaise.  Surprisingly my son takes to that as he dislikes mayo.

I am glad that dinner ends well today. 

So are you prepared for a brand new week?  I am excited and can't wait.

Good night.

  1. Oh yes, this is a very popular dish with my boys too, they always ask for this whenever we eat out, because I don't like to fry fish lol! I must say yours looks perfectly cooked!
