I grew up in New England, in a Catholic family. Battered fried fish is a staple of our diet during Lent and in general.
When I joined the military there were a few things I always had to have when I came home 1) Maple Doughnuts and 2) Del’s Lemonade. I learned to do with out the fish and chips , so long as I could have the aforementioned vices. Once I had children I became accustomed to purchasing fish sticks and the sort from my local grocers freezer… Then it hit me- How deprived we were!!
To this day I have never come across a place in the US who do Fish and Chips like the New Englanders. I’m sure some will say that’s biased. It’s this bias that made one of my highlights to England walking into a pub getting my order of fish and chips and walking down the street consuming them. Simple I know, but that’s when I think I realized how much of a comfort food Fish & Chips had been for me. I made it my mission to find a place here in the south that would even have it on their menu and it was nearly impossible!!!
I found a recipe and then I learned we had to go Gluten Free!!! Aww the agony!!! 2 years later Jules came to my rescue once again!!!! So without further ado :
If you love food and you can’t eat gluten for whatever reason, please give Jules’s flour a try. I don’t think you could regret it. She also has a facebook page and great Customer Service.
