  • 160g Cornish Whiting Fillets x 2
  • 500g Potatoes
  • 150g pouch of Thai Tartare Sauce
  • 100g Adam’s Secret Tempura Batter Mix
  • 2 x Bok Choi
  • 10g Coriander


  1. Set your oven to pre-heat to around 200C – 220C. Wash, then cut your potatoes into 1cm thick slices and then into 1cm thick sticks. Place them into a roasting tin and drizzle with rapeseed oil, or similar, ensuring each chip is evenly coated. Season well, and bake for about 15 – 20 minutes, turning once or twice until golden brown and crisp
  2. To make the tempura batter, empty the batter mix to a suitable bowl and add 175ml ice cold soda water. Mix together until “just mixed”, but still a bit lumpy.
  3. Heat some sunflower oil for deep frying in a suitable pan, to 190C. Dip the whiting fillets into the batter and fry for 4 – 5 minutes, until crisp and golden brown. Remove carefully onto a tray lined with kitchen paper.
  4. Prep and cook the bok choi in some boiling salted water, or steamer, for 3 to 5 minutes until tender, but not overcooked.
  5. To serve - carefully place the fish, chips and bok choi onto your plates and accompany with the Thai tartare sauce. Garnish with fresh coriander, and possibly lime wedges if you have some.
