Is it only in the UK, that the traditional lunch is Fish n Chips?

Just curious, and yes, before you ask, we had some.

I prefer "Plaice" to Cod though.

Prime Rib:

Take 10-15 lb rib roast
Rub with salt and pepper and let sit overnight
Bring up to room temp for about an hour or so before cooking
Deep Fry in 350-360 degree oil about 3-4 minutes per pound
Remove and let set for 15-20 min. before carving

Far and away the best prime rib I have ever eaten. I will be making one this Sunday for a Christmas Party. My mouth is watering already.

the killer for me is english fish n chips has the skin on, that's so wrong.

Mac knows all about proper chips, head down to Lafleur's (restaurant chain in Quebec) and those are gooood. Hopefully they haven't changed the oil in a while because that's where all the flavour comes from.

Add large amounts of cheese curds, douse liberally with a very robust gravy and voila, poutine.

Nothing like it folks, clog your arteries instantly and get a good base for a night of drinkin'.

Did someone mention angioplasty? ;)

Batter recipe: (After many years of experiments)

You will need:

Self raising flour (4oz)
Plain flour (4oz)
Milk 1/2 pint
Salt pinch
Oil a dash
2 egg whites (beat till stiff)
1 egg yolk
Some carbonated water

1. Mix the flours, milk, oil, egg yolk and a pinch of salt to a very smooth consistency, and then put in the fridge for an hour.

2. Remove from fridge add a little carbonated water, until the mixture will nicely coat the back of a spoon then stir in beaten egg whites.

3. Use by coating fish in corn flour, shaking of surplus and immersing into batter. Remove from batter and hold over bowl for 5 seconds to drain surplus. Immerse coated fish in oil heated to 355F until golden brown (6-8 minutes).

N.B. If you are under observation use Champagne instead of carbonated water.

YESSSS!

and not a trace of fish in this tasty burnt lard!

But frankly, nothing will beat Belgian fries with remoulade sauce.

God, I love this place.
