Method
1. In a large mixing bowl add the flour, baking powder and salt and give it a mix. Next slowly pour in the water, whisking the whole time until you have used all the water and have a nice smooth lump free batter.
2. Now take your fish fillets and dry well using some kitchen roll.
3. Place your oil in a large heavy based saucepan on the heat, it’s time to cook the fish.
4. To check your oil is hot enough to fry, pour a small teaspoon of the batter into the oil and if it rises to the top and starts to go golden, it is ready.
5. Dip the fish fillets into the batter holding the top of the fillet, make sure it is fully covered in the batter and then place carefully into the oil, being very cautious of the hot oil.
6. Cook the fish in 2 batches. So, 2 in the first batch, cooking until golden on both sides. This will take around 3-5 minutes depending on the size of the fillet. Once golden, remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and place on some kitchen roll inside a baking tray and cover with tin foil while you cook the second batch of fish.
7. if freezing leave it to cool completely.
8. If eating now, serve up with the chips and enjoy!
