Tags: Egyptian Summer, Fish

Fish and Chips – a summer classic! I’m sure you’ve tried and tested all the fab fish and chip stands within a 50 mile radius, so how about creating a delicious version yourself? Put it on your to-do list this summer and try out this recipe! Lightly beer battered with one of our favourite beers, Uncle Leo’s Brewery, partnered with a taste of our Egyptian Summer spice blend.


  • 2 lbs Cod Fillets
  • 1/2 cup Flour for dusting
  • Canola oil for frying


  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 tbsp Big Cove Foods Egyptian Summer spice blend
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cups Uncle Leo’s Red Ale
  • 1 Egg


  • 1 cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 TBS Big Cove Foods Lime Chili Coriander Shrub
  • 2 TBS Minced Shallot (1 medium shallot)
  • 2 TBS Minced Cornichons or Gherkins (about 2)
  • 2 TBS Capers, Drained dried and minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 TBS Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest

First thing you are going to want to do is put all the ingredients for the Totally Awesome Tartar Sauce in a bowl and mix well. Let it chill out in the fridge for at least an hour to let all the flavours get friendly with each other. The longer you do, the more awesome it will taste.

If you are using a deep fryer preheat to 350. You can also use a pot with a deep fry thermometer.

Whisk together Beer Batter ingredients until well mixed. Dust the cod fillets with Flour on a plate. Coat each one with the beer batter.

Lower fish into the oil one at a time and fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Put fried fish into a bowl lined with paper towel to soak up any access oil.

Plate, add fries and enjoy!
