Why We Love It
Fish and chips is a classic Maritime dish, especially in the summer. This version is a bit lighter since it’s done entirely in the oven. The recipe below makes enough fish and chips for two people, but can easily be scaled for a larger group.
Ingredients – Chips
- Three large Yukon or Russet potatoes
- Slightly more than 1 tbsp. vinegar
- 2 tsp. table salt
- 1 tbsp. canola oil
- Sea salt to taste
Ingredients – Fish
- Two fish fillets (any white fish will do, such as cod, haddock, or tilapia)
- About ¼ cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
- 1 cup gluten-free kettle chips, salt and vinegar flavour
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Fill a large pot with water, 2 tsp. table salt, and slightly more than 1 tbsp. vinegar. Bring to a boil.
- While water is coming to a boil, cut potatoes into French fry shapes (stick about half an inch thick, or however you like them).
- Once water is boiling, place potatoes in pot and boil for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, drain potatoes well using a strainer or colander. (Be careful because they will be fragile.) Then, carefully place them in a bowl, toss with the canola oil, and season with salt.
- Place potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or non-stick foil. Place sheet into oven and set a timer for 13 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place potato chips in a Ziploc baggie and smash them up with a rolling pin or mallet.
- Brush fish with the Miracle Whip and then press crushed chips onto the sauce. Carefully place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or non-stick foil.
- Once the oven timer goes off, turn the French fries over. Put the fish into the oven at the same time.
- Bake both fish and fries for 12 minutes. Season fries with extra salt if desired.
- Serve and enjoy!
- Be very careful when purchasing the kettle chips. We have seen several brands that include malt vinegar but were labelled gluten-free. We would recommend the Covered Bridge or Kettle brands.
- If you are just making the fries, you can also cook them at 500°F for 20 minutes.
- Thanks to reader Dave for the chip recipe!
