How To Make Copycat Applebee’s Hand-Battered Fish and Chips

  • 3 qt vegetable oil

  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 lb haddock fillets (skinned and cut into strips)
  • 1 bottle beer

Chips

  1. Over medium heat, warm the oil in a large deep pot. Allow oil to heat to 325°F.

Fried fish

  1. Raise the oil temperature in the pot to roughly 375 degrees.

  3. Coat the fish fillets in the mixture and add to the oil in batches. Fry the fish fillets until golden brown.

  4. Once the fillets are done, remove from oil and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain and cool before serving.
