This is not Fish and Chips as we usually think of it,
but there is fish and there are potato chips.

500 g [1,1 lb] fish fillet without skin and bones,
haddock, cod or flounder
5-6 potatoes
Oil for frying
1 dl [0,2 pt] flour
1 teaspoon of salt
A little pepper

This is what you do

[1] If you have caught the fish yourself, this is a very nice and simple dish you can prepare on the campfire. Clean and cut the fish into fillets so you have skin and bone free pieces of fish. Cut the fish into 3-5 cm / 1 1/2 – 2 inch pieces.

[2] Wash and clean the potatoes, leave the skin on. Cut the potatoes into thin wedges. Mix flour, salt and pepper in a thin plastic bag. Put the fish pieces in the bag and turn the bag between your fingers till all the fish pieces is covered with the mix.

[3] Heat some oil in a campfire wok. Watch the heat, the oil can easily get too hot. Stir the potatoes first in the hot oil. When the potatoes are golden and crispy, take them out of the wok and put them on on some kitchen paper and sprinkle lightly with salt.

[4] Fry the fish pieces 2-3 minutes on each side. Let them fry until they are nice and crispy on  the outside. When finished, put them on  kitchen paper.

Serve the fish and potatoes along with a fresh salad.
