Baked Fish "IN" Chips

When I was little we lived in a very small town outside of Reno, Nevada. There wasn't much there really.

But I remember that my parents always took me to a pizza place called Shakey's and this fish and chips place.

Don't ask me the name, I am lucky I remembered Shakey's!!

But I think we went to one or the other once a week.

I loved the fish and chips place because it was made to look like a real British pub.

Not that I would have known what a British pub looked like when I kid, but I loved the tall chairs and heavy wood round tables. I thought they were so cool.

Those are very fond memories of mine, and anytime I can find a place that serves fish and chips I am there.

I just hate that most of the time the fish is so greasy.

Then I was watching The Cooking Channel and a show called Tripping Out with Alie and Georgia came on.

Have you seen this show? They are seriously hilarious!!

Anyway, they had this idea to combine the fish and chips into one bite. YUM!!

I immediately wrote down what I would need to accomplish this and BOOM it happened.

Kevin raved over these little beauties.

Nice thick firm cod, 

covered in salty, crunchy potato chips,


YUM!! I am seriously craving these again!

I need to head back into the kitchen.

Baked Fish "IN" Chips  

1 1/2 pounds cod fillet
1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 bag (8.5 ounces) kettle style potato chips, sea salt flavor
1 large egg

Optional garnish:
Tartar sauce
Malt Vinegar
Fresh dill

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Place a cooling rack on a rimmed baking sheet, spray with non-stick or oil.

Cut the cod into 3x1" pieces and set aside. Place the flour and Old Bay in a shallow dish and stir to combine. Crush the potato chips finely and pour into a shallow dish. Beat the egg in a shallow dish.

Set up a breading station. Flour each piece of cod, then dip in the egg and roll in the potato chips. Make sure to press the chips firmly to the fish. Carefully place the coated fish on the rack over the baking sheet. Continue with the remaining fish.

Bake the fish for 12 minutes.
