  • - Right, the most
  • which is my go-to comfort food-- served
  • with incredible fries and the most delicious mushy peas.
  • For me, fish and chips screams cod--
  • highly sustainable, delicious, but the secret
  • is in the batter.
  • This is a beer batter, double zero flour, eggs, and beer.
  • It sort of makes it lighter, crispier,
  • and it's an amazing flavor.
  • The secret is to make that batter the night before.
  • The more you let it rest, it becomes so crispy.
  • Take your cod, run it through into seasoned flour, salt,
  • pepper.
  • You could jazz this up a little bit with a touch of paprika.
  • Lightly season your fish.
  • To wet a fish can destroy the batter,
  • so I like to season my fish first with salt.
  • That extracts the moisture from the fish, which keeps
  • the batter even more crispy.
  • Then from there, just brush off that seasoning
  • and just pat down the fish.
  • That way it stays nice and firm.
  • Into the flour, and then nicely rolled--
  • make sure you get the ends done.
  • Dredge the fish in the flour in order
  • to make sure the batter sticks, really important.
  • And then next, into the batter.
  • Make sure you dust off any excess flour, otherwise,
  • you get these white clumps of flour underneath the batter.
  • Into the batter, let it sink.
  • I like topping tailing my fish.
  • I trim the top, trim the base-- you've
  • got the even piece of fish.
  • If it's cut evenly, it's going to cook evenly.
  • Shake off the excess flour and into the batter.
  • Roll that fish around and let it sink in there.
  • Now oil comes up to 300.
  • It takes about six to seven minutes to cook beautifully,
  • but here's the secret.
  • Keep that fish coated.
  • This is where it gets messy, but exciting.
  • Lift up your fish.
  • Go left to right, dredging it, and then very quickly
  • get a point of the fish.
  • Let the battery run down, shake off any excess flour,
  • and then into the fryer.
  • And just sort of taunt it first, and just let it
  • lay away from you.
  • Shake the pan gently.
  • That starts to cover the top of the fish.
  • Take a spatula and just gently baste the top of the fish.
  • Once you've had the fish in there for two minutes,
  • flip over the fish.
  • That way you see it evenly coated.
  • God, it's beautiful, golden brown.
  • Now take that out.
  • Shake it well.
  • Let that sit.
  • They're like these perfect parcels,
  • and literally let that sit there.
  • Now as it's piping hot, use salt,
  • and just lightly season the top.
  • And what happens to the fish now,
  • it just gets even crispier, but the batter's
  • seasoned underneath and on top.
  • And that's really important.
  • Right, fries-- these are Yukon gold potatoes
  • and basically just peeled.
  • Don't wash, because I want the starch
  • to get really nice and crispy.
  • I start them off at a very low temperature, in a way
  • that I blanch them.
  • And I have literally in the oil first for two minutes at 330--
  • in.
  • [sizzling]
  • Blanching basically means cooking with no color.
  • And the secret here now is to blanch
  • them for two minutes at 330.
  • Take them out, let them rest.
  • Crank up the heat.
  • Go from 320 to 385, great.
  • Now temperature's risen, fries back in.
  • Second time cooking, and this time, it's
  • going to be nice and crispy.
  • A great indicator cooking in fryers
  • is that when it starts to float, it's
  • confirmation that it's cooked whether it's
  • fish, chicken, or fries.
  • Cooking fries twice, blanching them first, and then putting
  • them back in hot oil at the end is so much more healthier,
  • because they don't sit in the oil for anywhere
  • near as long as frozen fries.
  • So it's really good to cook them twice, super healthy.
  • Fries are done.
  • Shake-- you can hear how crispy they are.
  • Out onto a tray, drain them really well.
  • Lightly, rub off the excess fat.
  • Let them sit there.
  • I love placing them into a bowl--
  • fresh parsley on top, a touch of paprika, and then a touch
  • of salt and pepper.
  • And then from there, just roll them around.
  • You can hear how crispy they are, beautiful.
  • Fish and chips would not be complete unless we've got peas.
  • I use frozen peas all the time, so don't be scared.
  • A splash of oil, just a splash--
  • peas go in, beautiful.
  • Touch of salt, touch of pepper, a little hint of shallots
  • minced in, and garlic-- it's a great way
  • of elevating mushy peas.
  • From there, a little knob of butter, in, and then
  • you just toss those peas.
  • Once that bus is evaporated, we turn off
  • the gas, and then just crush--
  • beautiful.
  • And that's where you take this frozen pea into a mushy pea.
  • And we sort of trying to break it up almost like it's sort
  • of a puree, but I don't want to refine
  • them too much, because the flavor's when you burst them.
  • Touch more butter in there-- butter
  • gives it that really nice glossy finish.
  • One more little finishing touch with fresh mint.
  • Just bring the leaves down, lay them on top of one another.
  • Get your largest leaf on the bottom, roll it really tight,
  • and then just shred.
  • Let the knife do the work.
  • Look, beautiful, fresh mint.
  • Now sprinkle that over your peas,
  • and that just lifts the peas beautifully.
  • When I serve lemon on a plate, I take these bits off.
  • These are like the posh parts.
  • It's just like the perfect wedge or slice of lemon.
  • And now we're ready to plate.
  • Fish comes over-- hear how crunchy that is.
  • Fries, place on there--
  • look how crispy they are-- beautifully done.
  • And then, from there, this beautiful mound of mushy peas.
  • Place to the side.
  • Finally, this sort of Rolls Royce of sources with fish
  • and chips, tartar sauce.
  • It's a mayonnaise with gherkins, onions, and the most
  • amazing capers in there.
  • That goes on the side.
  • And that just cascades off.
  • And how can you serve fish and chips without lemon?
  • I get my lemon here, and I just squeeze it
  • over the fish onto the salt. And then put a fresh one
  • there, literally for seconds.
  • And there we have fish and chips a la Gordon.
