Used different ingredients. Didn't use this tartare sauce recipe, but another from; 120ml mayo, 5ml lemon juice, 20g diced onion and 20g diced gherkin- easy and tasty. - 28 May 2010


This was really easy to prepare and cook, and tasted great. I'd not battered chips before, so I battered some potato, and just cooked others normally. Both were good. Next time I might add some dried herbs to the batter. I had 500g of fish and it easily served 4 people. - 28 May 2010


Far too greasy for me, although I admit I enjoyed the battered sliced potato. Maybe some fresh salad to go with it would ease the cholestorol intake? - 16 Sep 2010
