Fried Fish

  • 480 g white fish cut into 4
  • 4 burger buns brioche is my preference
  • 750 ml frying oil canola, sunflower, olive
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup self raising flour


  • 250 ml sparkling water
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 tsp salt


  • 1 cup wombok chopped
  • .5 cup red cabbage chopped
  • 1 carrot julienned
  • .5 red onion chopped
  • 1 handful coriander

Pickled Jalapeno Aioli

  • 10 pickled jalapenos
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 handful coriander
  • 2 tsp pickled juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil



  • Place all ingredients except oil into a mini food processor and blend adding oil gradually until it thickens 


  • Place all chopped ingredients into a bowl and mix together


  • Place ingredients into a bowl and whisk together.  If batter is too thick add more sparkling water.  If too thin add a little more flour

Fried Fish Sandwich

  • Heat oil to about 190c. Season fish and dust in flour. 
  • Dip fish into batter, lifting it so that excess batter falls away.  Place gently in heated oil away from you so that the oil doesn't splatter you. Cook until fish is crispy - about 4/5 minutes.  Lay in a wire rack, season and allow to rest for a minute. 

Sandwich Assembly

  • I like to toast my bun a little so it doesn't get all soggy.  Place a little aioli on base of bun, add fish, then slaw and drizzle aioli over. Top with bun and DESTROY!!



Essential Tools

  • chef knives
  • chopping board
  • mini food processor
  • whisk
  • mixing bowl
  • saucepan
  • wire rack
  • thermometer


  • you can use mayo instead of making aioli if preferred and add the coriander to the slaw and place the pickled jalapenos or chopped jalapenos within the sandwich to cut out a few steps
  • don't forget to season the fish before and after frying
  • you can also substitute frozen battered fish if in a hurry but using fresh fish where possible is always best
