  1. 1.
    Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).
  2. 2.
    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sparkling water, baking powder, salt, and pepper until smooth. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.
  3. 3.
    In the meantime, toss the potato wedges with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
  4. 4.
    Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 180°C (350°F).
  5. 5.
    Dip each fish fillet into the batter, allowing any excess to drip off, and carefully place it into the hot oil. Fry the fish for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  6. 6.
    Sprinkle the fish with fresh parsley and serve with the crispy potato wedges and lemon wedges on the side.

Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Fish — Choose fresh, high-quality fillets for the best flavor and texture. Pat them dry before dipping in the batter to ensure a crispy coating.
  • Potatoes — Opt for starchy potatoes like Russet or Maris Piper for the perfect texture in the wedges. Soaking them in cold water for 30 minutes before baking will help achieve a crispier result.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra touch of elegance, serve the fish and chips on individual plates lined with parchment paper.
  • Experiment with different dipping sauces such as tartar sauce, aioli, or a lemon-infused mayonnaise for added flavor.
  • To achieve a lighter batter, substitute some of the sparkling water with chilled beer or champagne.
  • For a healthier twist, you can also bake the fish instead of frying it. Simply place the battered fillets on a greased baking sheet and bake at 200°C (400°F) for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through.

Serving advice

Serve the Haute Cuisine Fish and Chips hot, with a sprinkle of sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Accompany it with a side of the gourmet potato wedges and a small ramekin of the chosen dipping sauce.

Presentation advice

Arrange the fish fillets diagonally on the plate, leaning against the stack of potato wedges. Garnish with a sprig of fresh parsley and a lemon wedge on the side. Consider adding a drizzle of flavored oil or a sprinkle of microgreens for an elegant touch.
