Preparation of the spicy tartar sauce, Fish & Chips and vegetables


Spicy tartar sauce:

  • 1 bottle/ 250 ml (1 cup) of MITO spicy Mayo
  • 2 tbsp. relish
  • 2 tbsp. sour pickled, diced
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice

Fish & Chips with side vegetables

  • 1 ½ cups MITO Tempura Mix
  • 1 ¼ cups microbrewery red beer
  • 2 tbsp. MITO Fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 6 fish filets or portions of filets depending on the type of fish (haddock, cod, trout, etc.)
  • 2 bunches of asparagus
  • 4 medium sized sweet potatoes, cut into sticks
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)
  1. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the spicy tartar sauce. Reserve in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425oF (210oC)
  3. In a bowl, with a whip, miz the Tempura mix with the sugar, beer and fish sauce. Leave to rest a few minutes.
  4. On a baking pan covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle oil over the potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. On a seperate baking pan, repeat the process with the asparagus.
  6. Place the two pans of vegetables in the preheated oven. Cook the sweet potatoes 20-30 minutes, or until golden and tender. Cook the asparagus 10 minutes.
  7. In a deep fryer or a heavy-bottomed pot, heat the oil on medium-high heat until it reaches 190oC (375oF).
  8. Coat a fish fillet in the tempura mix prepared above and then carefully place the fillet in the hot oil. Cook roughly 5 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fillet) or until golden brown. Remove the fillet from the oil and place on a paper towel.
  9. Repeat the above step for each fillet.
  10. Serve the fish with the spicy tartar sauce and vegetables! Bon appétit!

To attain the best quality of fried fish, crunchy and golden brown, make sure your oil is always at the right temperature before placing the fish. Avoid crowding the pot with many fillets as this will decrease the temperature.
