Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Fish — Ensure the fish fillets are fresh and free from any fishy odor. Pat them dry before coating with the flour mixture to ensure a crispy texture.
  • Chimichurri sauce — Prepare the chimichurri sauce in advance to allow the flavors to meld together. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • Salsa criolla — Finely chop the onions, tomatoes, and bell peppers for a chunky and colorful salsa criolla. Let it sit for a while to allow the flavors to develop.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra crispy coating, you can double-dip the fish fillets in the flour mixture before frying.
  • Serve the Fish and Chips with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for a burst of citrus flavor.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the flour mixture.
  • To make the papas fritas even more flavorful, sprinkle them with a mixture of salt, paprika, and dried oregano before baking.
  • Experiment with different types of fish, such as sea bass, trout, or even salmon, to add variety to your Argentinian-style Fish and Chips.
