Something Fishy

January 24th 2012 15:51
Okay, I have been sick for 3 days. I have a horrible cold, and I am perpetually exhausted. Therefore, last night for dinner, all I had the energy to do was to pull out my deep fryer and throw in some fish and fries. The fish was store-bought, but the fries and tartar sauce were home-made.

Homemade Fries

5 Lb. bag of potatoes
Large bowl of ice water
Large towel
Deep Fryer

1.) Cut your potatoes into fries
2.) Place the cut fries immediately into the bowl of ice water. Let soak for at least 1 hour (overnight in the fridge is better).

3.) Set fryer to 275 degrees
4.) Rinse potatoes several times.
5.) Dry fries completely
6.) Place fries in the fryer for 5 minutes or until they begin to turn pale yellow.
7.) Drain fries completely to remove as much oil as possible.
8.) Once fries reach room temperature, place on a baking pan so that they are not touching.
9.) Place baking pan in freezer until fries are completely frozen.
10.) Place frozen fries in ziplock bags or plastic containers in the freezer until ready to use

When you are ready to eat the fries, fry them just like you would store-bought fries. These fries are amazing! They come out perfectly golden and crispy every time!

Homemade Tartar Sauce

1/2 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 cup of pickle relish
Dash of onion powder
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of salt

1.) Mix all of the ingredients into a sealable container.
2.) Refridgerate mixture overnight.

That's really all there is to the tartar sauce, but it is better than any that I have ever bought at the store (except MAYBE the stuff they used to have at the Flying Bridge Fish Market on the corner of Plainfield and Leonard in Grand rapids, MI.).
