I love making different versions of classic recipes. My husband loves classic fish and chips, a dish he ate growing up back east. I grew up in Southern California with tons of fresh seafood, lots of Mexican influences as well as Asian influences in the meals I made and ate. I was going back and forth on if I wanted to make a Mexican version or an Asian version of this classic recipe. I went with Asian style because I had been wanting to make tempura salmon for a while. We love salmon in all forms, sashimi, baked, grilled and now tempura style.
Traditional fish and chips is made with a beer batter so I used a light Japanese beer for the tempura batter. The key to tempura is keeping it as cold as possible. Chilling the batter and keeping on an ice bath while dipping the fish just before frying. It keeps it super light and crispy and doesn’t soak up a ton of oil.
The chips portion of this Asian style fish and chips recipe are baked Japanese sweet potatoes. They are a starchier sweet potato than traditional orange hued ones so they keep crispier when baking. I have a few secret tips on how to keep them crispy when baking. It works well for orange sweet potatoes too.
Don’t these look amazing!! I love the wide variety of Asian foods that are always in stock at Cost Plus World Market as well as the ones they have in seasonally.
