For the Fish:

  • 1 pound of fresh cod cut into 4 ounce fillets
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of cornstarch
  • 2 cups of beer or lemon Perrier
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 10 to 12 cups of canola oil

For the Tartar Sauce:

  • 1 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup of chopped capers
  • 1/2 cup of small diced pickles
  • 1 tablespoon of pickle juice
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • dash of Tabasco sauce

For the Fries:

  • 2 russet potatoes cut into thick batonnet slices
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup of shredded asiago cheese
  • malt vinegar for garnish


  • Tartar Sauce: Mix together all ingredients in a medium sized bowl, set aside and keep cool.
  • Fish: In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cornstarch, beer, salt and pepper until it is completely combined.
  • Next, dredge the fish completely into the batter and add it to a fryer, or pot with canola oil on 350° for 4 to 6 minutes or golden brown and cooked throughout.
  • Once they are cooked, remove from the fryer and set on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain any excess oil.
  • Fries: Next, add the sliced batonnet potatoes to the fryer, or pot with canola oil, and cook on 350° for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  • Remove the fries from the oil and drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with sliced green onions and shredded asiago cheese.
  • Serve the fish and fries on a plater lined with parchment paper alongside separate ramekins of tartar sauce and malt vinegar.


There will be plenty of leftover tartar sauce.
