- Start by pre-heating the oven to 220C (gas mark 7) or 200C in a fan oven.
- Cut the organic potatoes to your chosen size and shape for the chips. Fill a large saucepan with enough water to boil the potatoes in and bring to boil. Toss the chips in the pan and lower the heat to allow them to simmer for 4 mins. After, drain the chips and place on a baking tray. Leave the chips to cool. Then, cover the chips in 1 tbsp of olive oil and cook in the oven for 10 mins.
- Then turn the chips on the tray and put back in the oven for another 10 mins.
- Meanwhile, put 1 tbsp of organic flour on a plate and cover the fish in the flour.
- Next you need to make the batter. You do this by mixing the organic flour, organic corn flour, salt and pepper. Then add the egg white into the flour mix, making sure you mix it as you pour it in.
- Cover the fish with the batter mix.
- Pour the organic olive oil into a frying pan. Ensure that the base of the pan is covered in oil. Then heat the pan to around 200C (gas mark 6) or 180C for a fan oven.
- Put the fish into the pan and fry it for 7-10 mins. Make sure you turn the fish halfway through the cooking process to cook both sides of the batter and ensure the fish is cooked through.
- When the organic chips are cooked to taste, serve with your battered organic fish and enjoy.
