Fish & Chips
Fish and chips is a kind of meal that originally came from the United Kingdom. It is a popular kind of fast food in some parts of the world. As the name says, it is made of chips, or French fries, and a deep fried fish fillet. This meal is very popular all over the UK. Each year, more than 276 million meals of fish and chips are sold there. It is easy to come across shops that sell fish and chips in the United Kingdom because there are so many of them.
Cod or haddock are traditionally used to make fish and chips but other kinds of white fish can be used as well. Of these, cod is the most popular fish. Most restaurants use either cod or haddock. Many shops that dish up fish and chips have more than one kind of fish. The customers can then choose what kind of fish they want.
The fish is always dipped in batter, which is a kind of liquid mixture. Batter can be made with water, milk, or eggs and it hardens when it is fried. The fish is usually fried for a few minutes. The chips are made from sliced potatoes. They are usually larger than French fries, and these large slices of potatoes are also fried.
