Fish & Chips

Fish and chips is a very simple dish you can prepare in less than half an hour, and you know already that everyone will love it. So when you lack ideas and time and need to turn on the “fast saving money” mode, fish and chips are the perfect recipe to prepare even twice a week, why not? Of course, the best fish for preparing this meal is cod, but you can replace it with other types of fish like haddock or plaice.
