    Fries: bake off at 140° C, then let them cool, afterwards final baking at 175-180° C for finishing them, and getting them crispy.

    As for the fried fish, I like it best with tartar sauce.

    The Dutch have "kibbeling" which is also fried fish, but mostly NOT eaten with fries, just with tartar sauce or another sauce which goes well with fried fish. It is something that you can buy on most Dutch markets to consume as a snack.

    For anyone who likes the chippy curry sauce, or the curries that seem peculiar to chinky takeaways, take a trip to your local Home Bargains, they sell a powder curry sauce that very similar and knocks up in minutes.

    Re:> Tony C Ive read thats how they get the unique taste, The curry spices are cooked in about a minute in a hot wok

    Instead of being simmered for an hour or more alla Indian resturants.

    I had to google those two. That skate varies hugely in size. It's about that time to stop talking and go for some battered fish.

    I had a good f&c in Berlin, and a VERY good one in Sterling (Schotland). Mediocre ones here in the Netherlands. It's somehow not possible here to get AND the fish AND the chips right.

    First fry in fat, second fry in oil: that's how it's meant to be.

    The main discussion here is whether chips are 'patat' or 'friet'.
