Young's Chip Shop Large Battered Cod Fillets
First, peel the potatoes and cut lengthways into roughly 1 cm slices.
Place the cut potatoes into a large bowl and cover with plenty of water. Leave the potatoes to soak for as long as you can, preferably overnight.
Drain the potatoes and pat well to dry on a clean kitchen towel. Set aside, covered, while you prepare the mushy peas.
Cook the peas in boiling water for two minutes and drain.
Transfer the cooked peas to a blender or food processor. Add the butter, vinegar and chopped herbs. Process for a short time until the peas have broken down but still retain some texture. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 230 C/ 200 C fan/ gas mark 8.
Heat rapeseed oil in a deep fat frier or in a large, heavy-based pan (with a lid placed nearby in case it catches fire!) to 130 C.
Pop the Young's Chip Shop Large Cod Fillets in the preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes (set a timer so you don't forget).
Deep fry the chips in the hot oil for 10 minutes, so that they par-cook but don't brown.
Remove from the heat and drain on a tea towel while you heat the oil up to 190 C.
Deep fry the chips for a further 4-5 minutes, until crisp and golden brown.
Remove from the heat and sprinkle with salt and vinegar.
Reheat the mushy peas, if needed.
Serve the Young's Chip Shop Cod Fillets with the twice-cooked chips and mushy peas on the side.
