Garlic Butter Roasted Chicken Thighs with Charred Lemon Salsa Verde + Asparagus.
It’s pub food Wednesday and things are gettin’ real good.
Especially since it’s already Wednesday! AND we are cooking with beer AND potato chips. I told you things were gettin’ GOOD!
I think the Irish would be proud. Or at least I hope so, cause umm I love this meal.
Remember yesterday when I said that I was having way too much fun with some Irish recipes? Yeah, well I was not kidding and this one right here is one of my favorites. Ok well, I really can’t pick a favorite cause I love them all, but it’s fish and chips!!
Who doesn’t love a good round of fish and chips? Crazy people…AKA my whole family, minus my dad and one of my older brothers.
I know that traditionally, fish and chips are all about some seriously delicious battered fish, fried to crisp perfection along with chips that are equally delicious and also perfectly fried. But I sort of did these a little differently. I can’t tell you the full on background because then I would be giving away this super secret family recipe… that I will some day share… just waiting for the very most perfect time… cause it’s that good.
So this was inspired by that secret recipe. Just think of it as a little teaser and, well believe it or not, a healthier version. Ah huh.
Instead of frying the fish, I crusted it in potato chips. Oh my gosh. I know. Salty, crunchy and downright delicious potato chips. Don’t you think that’s almost better than frying? I am kind of thinking so because it is crazy good. It’s also way easier which means major bonus points.
For the chips, I went with thicker cut, beer soaked oven fries. Yes, you read that right, beer soaked. Soaking the potatoes in beer ensures you will get a crispy outside and a soft inside. Most people will tell you to soak them for three-hours, but I was WAY too impatient and went with thirty minutes. It seemed to work great, cause those chips were gone in minutes.
Something about salty potatoes, man they are just so good. The Irish totally know what’s up. They may not have a ton of foods they are known for, but I’d say if there was only one to be known for, the potato is sure a good one. I honestly do not know one person who doesn’t love potatoes, including even gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan eaters alike.
And these days, I’d say that is an amazing accomplishment.
To go along side my fish and chips I made a quick spicy Remoulade with blue cheese swirl throughout. Don’t yell at me for putting cheese in Remoulade, I promise it’s kind of a genius idea. Just try it.
Oh, and I also made some minted peas, which apparently is the thing to do in Ireland, so I went with it, their pretty good.

PS. You should probably serve these potato chip crusted fish and chips with some beer. Yeah, you know, to give yourself the true pub-style experience!
This sounds really delicious and something new to try. love fish and chips, Thank you for sharing this.
Thanks! Happy New Year!

Could you make the chips using sweet potatoes? Love your blog and the fun recipes. Thank you||!!
Just made this tonight and boyfriend, 2 year old and dog were literally drooling in the kitchen the entire time I was cooking! Fussy boyfriend even said that it’s better than take out fish and chips, and hey, he’s English! Love your blog and your caramelised pork ramen is permanently on my fortnightly menu! Can’t wait for more great recipes, who knows I might do the whole ‘Julie and Julia’ based on your recipes 😉 Love, your newfound food worshipper x
HAH!! This is SO awesome! Thank you!!
I love fish and chips and will definitely give these version a try. I live here in L.A., where our Dodgers are known for Baseball and soaking their hot dogs in beer, so why not fries. While on that subject I’d also like to say, that I’m pretty sure the potato is from my Home country of Peru.

Holy flavorful yumminess!! These fish and chips are seriously awesome. And that Blue Cheese Remoulade?! Yum!! Pinned 🙂
I love how you soak your chips in beer — I’ve never thought of that! I’m sure the taste is incredible and I can’t wait to try that next time I make fish n chips 🙂
Hello, potato chips?? i.e. salt and vinegar potato crisps. Think this is what you mean… here in SA we call it crisps … a snack???
HA!! That would be awesome!!
This sounds like looooaaaaads of work to do to make something as simple as fish and chips, but if the results turn out like your photos, the time and effort is more than worth it!
This is the best looking fish and chips I’ve ever seen – love that potato chip crust!
Thank you so much, Laura!!
Wonderful crispy way to fix fish that’s flavorful and guilt free.
These are baked, not fried?? OK I NEED.
Thanks Stephanie!! I have not gotten to your cake post yet, BUT it looks simply AMAZING!
