Light, fluffy, crispy batter surrounds this Keto Fish and Chips recipe, with optional Keto onion rings to top it off! Macros include chips and onion rings and 1 fillet of fish each
Pat dry the fish using paper towel, getting them as dry as possible.
Peel the swede and cut into french fry shape rectangles.
Cut the onion into 1/2 cm slices, using the outside rings only (I got 6 rings). Save the rest of the onion for future use.
In a large bowl, whisk together the batter ingredients until smooth. It should be the consistency of a thick pancake batter.
In a small, high sided frying pan or wok, heat the cooking oil to 180C over medium high heat. I used a 20cm pan and cooked in 3 batches, and use a thermometer to get the temperature right. Once it reaches 180 turn the temperature to low to maintain this temperature.
In batches of 1 - 2 depending on your pan size, dip the fish fillets in the batter and fry until golden on one side then flip over. This usually takes 2 - 3 minutes per side.
While the fish is frying, you can batter a few chips and fry around the fish. Get them nice and golden and crispy!
Remove the golden fish and chips from the oil with a slotted spoon and place on paper towel.
Batter and fry the onion rings for 2 minutes per side or until golden. Drain on paper towel.
Serve immediately with fresh lemon, extra salt and tartare sauce!

I have allowed for 250ml of the lard to be absorbed, although this is probably overstating it but I would rather be over than under.
As above, this is a high calorie, dense meal. It is going to be most people's full protein needs for the day, or more! So choose when you have this wisely - either a fasting day, a workout day or a day when your lunch has been quite light.
