On a quest for good Fish & Chips!

For a long time I had an aversion to seafood! 

Let me explain…

While I was pregnant with Meghan I ate copious amounts of salmon, it was the only thing I could eat that wouldn’t send me into excruciating pain, because my gallbladder had decided to give me its resignation.  So until recently I wasn’t able to look at the stuff let alone smell it and well… quite frankly, all the oil spills and junk in the ocean didn’t help matters (yes I AM that paranoid)! 

So, you can imagine hubby’s excitement when I told him I fancied a bit of salmon

Getting a bit braver I’d order Fish & Chip while we were out at a restaurant, but always seemed to leave feeling a little unsatisfied.  I even ventured to buy Target’s Market Pantry Battered Fish Fillets after my mum served them up one day for Meg’s lunch.  They’re not bad for a quick fish fix and they don’t contain MSG! YAY!

Finally I told hubby we just needed to make our own and he agreed!

Later that week, while browsing the British goods section of our local Publix, I was pleasantly surprised to find a Chip-Shop Batter and tossed it into my cart, because that’s how I roll!  

 

 I picked up some fresh cod and a bag of potatoes and headed home. 

We ended up having a lot of fun while the fish was frying! 

 I told Meg how her Uncle Jamie used to be afraid of fish and how her Uncle Allan had once chased him down the street with a big raw one.  We also talked about the time daddy took Meghan wade fishing and gave Mummy a heart attack.

After giggling and sharing stories for a while the fish was finally ready to eat and boy was it good!

To join our Friday Food Fight, post a picture of your favorite food, meal, snack
or drink.  Of course, we’d love to see you enjoying your tasty treat, but you
don’t have to be in the picture.  Then on Friday, post your drool inducing photo
and link up here.

  1. I love the photo of the fish frying. What a great shot! I’ll have to snoop around at Publix for that batter. We’ve got a nice selection of British goods at our store too.

    My girls love that story about Daddy chasing Uncle Jamie with fish. It makes me chuckle too, but it wouldn’t be a funny story if it was zombies or clowns. BRAINS! lol
