Fish and Chips, Nordic Style
fish and chips, perch
Klaus & Thais
Vegetable Oil for frying
For the Batter
all purpose flour
handful of cornflakes
Salt and Pepper to taste
Aioli or Tartar sauce
Place in a bowl the flour and season it with salt and pepper. Stir well.
Add the beer and the carbonated water a little at a time and mix well with the help of a whisk to avoid forming any lumps.
Place enough vegetable oil in a saucepan so as to be able to deep fry the perch fillets.
Crumble the cornflakes with your hands and add them to the beer batter.*
When the oil is hot, dip the fillets in the batter and fry them from both sides until they reach a golden color.
Serve hot with cornichons, hot, crispy chips and aioli or tartar sauce.
* The cornflakes will in time absorb some moisture from the batter, so after a while you might need to add some more beer or carbonated water to it.
