Ingredients

  • 500g potato, peeled
  • 500g gold sweet potato, peeled
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
  • 500g boneless firm fish fillets
  • Vegetable oil, to deep-fry
  • 1 cup (135g) gluten-free plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup (250ml) chilled soda water

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 210°C. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Cut the potato and sweet potato crossways into 1cm-thick slices. Cut each slice into 1cm-thick batons.

STEP 2

Cook the potato and sweet potato in a large saucepan of boiling water for 4 mins or until just tender. Drain well. Pat dry with paper towel. Transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with the oil. Season and toss to coat. Place the potato and sweet potato in a single layer over the prepared trays. Place in the oven and cook, turning occasionally, for 50 mins or until golden and crisp.

STEP 3

Meanwhile, pat the fish dry with paper towel. Cut fish into 8 even portions. Pour vegetable oil into a non-stick frying pan or wok. Heat over medium-high heat. Place the flour and salt in a bowl. Slowly add the chilled soda water, whisking constantly until just smooth (add a little extra soda water if batter is too thick). Dip the fish in the batter to coat, allowing excess batter to drain off. Cook half the fish in the oil for 2-3 mins each side or until crisp and cooked through. Place on a wire rack over a baking tray to drain. Repeat with remaining fish. 

STEP 4

Divide fish and chips among serving plates.
