This is probably my favorite fish recipe of all, we used to live in the San Francisco Bay area and would get fish and chips down on the wharf all the time. When made right, this recipe rivals anything you can buy near the ocean. Now, if you live by the ocean, and you can buy fresh fish to start with, do it! But for those of us without that access I definitely prefer Costco. Buy fresh halibut or cod, fry it up within a couple of days, and don’t freeze it! I’m serious, this makes a huge difference in the way your fish will taste. Cook your chips first, then keep them warm in the oven while you cook your fish, that way your fries won’t taste like fish.
