Homemade Fish and Chips

Recipes 09/03/2018

Fish and chips is a kiwi classic, and it is just as easy to make as it is to buy at the takeaway shop. Delicious crumbed fish, homemade chips and a creamy tartare sauce made from scratch; what more could you want!

Serves: 4       Prep Time: 15 Minutes      Cook Time: 25-30 Minutes


500g agria potatoes (we love Wilcox)
4tbsp natural avocado oil (we love Olivado)
4 crumbed white fish fillets (we love United Fisheries Southern Blue Whiting)
1 cup mayonnaise (we love Best Foods)
Zest of 1 lemon
2 tsp capers, finely chopped
1-2 small gherkins, finely chopped
Handful of chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat your oven to 190 degrees celsius fan bake.
  2. Peel the potatoes and cut into chunky match sticks. Place in a pot of cold water, bring to the boil, and cook until just tender (around 10 minutes). Drain, and set aside.
  3. Pour the avocado oil onto a baking tray, and place in the oven for 5 minutes to heat. Remove from the oven, then carefully place the fries onto the tray. Lightly toss and season, then bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes (turning every 10 minutes) or until golden and crispy.
  4. Cook the fish fillets as per packet instructions.
  5. To make the tartare sauce: combine the mayo, lemon zest, capers, gherkins and parsley. Season to taste and serve alongside the fish and chips.
