    Is there any good substitute for the beer in the beer batter? I don’t eat or drink anything alcoholic for religious purposes

    Yo dude. Doesn't salmon have worms and parasites and whatnot? I don't know if 125° would be enough to kill all of the larvae and such

    That’s a lot of excess beer batter - what do you do worth the rest of it? Does it just go to waste?

    You should come over to the UK at some point and treat yourself to a nice fish n'chips from the local "chippie"; also, you can't go wrong with curry sauce (yes, curry sauce is quite common with chips around here!), although Gravy certainly works wonders as well.

    Is salmon really cheap everywhere else? In the Midwest, it's seen as an expensive fish that most don't bother buying.

    Just tried out the salmon recipe with a few alterations because i like to experiment. Omg you gotta try this. I used a full salmon fillet, same baking instructions but change the time to around 28 minutes of you salmon is thick and large like mine was. Before putting the mayo on put a healthy amount in a bowl mix in a healthy amount of fresh ground black pepper or to your tasting, about a table spoon of chili powder, maybe half a table spoon of ground pink himalayan salt or whatever you have lying around. Some oregano leaves one small lime, dice up about half a red onion not too fine but small, one green jalapeno, mix it all up very well then spread onto the salmon and instead of bread crumbs i used some corn bread mix ( jiffy because its a very dry cornbread ) it came out great. The corn bread adds a nice sweetness to along with the onions that baked in the mayo, with the perfect amount of a light spice from the jalapenos ( take seeds out of the jalapenos ) and the skin was nice and crispy brown.

    Hey Andy, I love my mum but whenever she buys fish she has this uncanny ability to always buy the absolute worst cut in the whole fishmongers. She just brought home a tiny salmon fillet that is mostly skin, was full of bones and upon removing them lost all structural integrity and now looks shaggy and nasty. Is there ANYTHING i can do to make it edible??

    Mate, the British empire literally invented the 'imperial' measures (inches, miles etc.) and we still use them more often than the French designed metric system. So please do not switch to the metric system on our account. I can assure you the Queen would not approve of your English.

    I accidentally spilled some beer over a piece of salmon before cooking it. I then cooked it with the beer (added a little bit more and flamed it over)
    It was the best mistake I've made.

    I love you bro but I have NO idea what world you live in where fish is economical. In the mountain parts of the US, decent fish consistently competes for the absolute most expensive protein source. I mean, unless you're catching it yourself.

  • SovietOnion

    Tip: if you want to keep your fish and chips *fully* British, use an English beer instead of Mexican. Spitfire is recommended.

    Babish, keep in mind with potato peels, if they were washed potatoes, those peels can also be easily fried or baked into crispy bits. Coat in oil and shove in an oven is what I think I saw a video say (I believe it was EmmyMadeInJapan). Then salt after they're all crispy.

  • Chad Johnson

    I'm going to have to disagree with your statement about seasoning everything separately. I think that's fine, but it needs to be done with different seasonings. Having different flavors on each part helps to create a more complex dish, and if something is flavorful on its own (ie. Salmon) you don't want to take from that. Different layers of flavor and texture makes for wonderful, restaurant class dishes.

    "Like your landlord clings to your security deposit"...a highly suspect phrase that jumped right out at me, and now you have a new apartment. I think, for some reason, that wasn't just a throw-away line.

    Aa a Brit, American English pronunciation confuses me. Americans pronounce niche as nitch, not neesh, so not the French (original) way, but then say fillay and not fill-it. Also, what is with not pronouncing the letter H on the word herb?

    My best seller every fridays, fish and chips with a side of coleslaw. I like using cod tails, it's the most economical of quality and quantity for us. I like adding lemon zest and cumin to my dredge, also good for fish tacos. But I like going a little thicker on the batter with a little more lavender so its fluffier.
    My best salmon is pan fried in a super hot wok then a sauce made of ginger, scallions, sugar, light soy, and dark soy over a teriyaki.

    Hey Bab. Line cook for 6 years now. If you lay the fish the opposite way the fish wont curl up like that. You want to lie the fish rib side down if that makes any sense. Just a tip i thought I should share. Love your videos dude

    Waiving the fish back and forth is a terrible technique I will never understand. I've been cooking beer battered fish professionally for a few years and all the better pieces were held still while being dropped.
