soda water fish

Soda water battered fish


Who doesn’t love the taste of fish and chips. I wanted to make battered fish that was not only tasty, but also light and not heavy.



4 servings

Prep time

5 minutes

Cooking time

35 minutes


  • 250 grams flour, plus extra flour to coat the fish in.

  • 1/2 tsp ground tumeric

  • 300 mls soda water

  • salt a pinch

  • Vegetable oil , to deep fry

  • 250 grams corn flour

  • 700 grams any firm white fish fillets , cut into 4 pieces or smaller pieces


  • Mix flour, corn flour, tumeric and pinch of salt.
    Whisk in the soda water until you get a smooth batter.
    Season fish with salt and pepper.
  • In a separate bowl, add extra flour and add seasoning, mix and than coat fish in flour and than shake off excess and than dip in batter.
  • Add oil to a large saucepan or wok to reach a depth of 6-7 cm (it should be no more than one-third full). Heat to 190°C over medium-high heat (to test when oil is ready, a cube of bread turns golden brown in 30-35 seconds).
  • Dip the fish in the batter and deep fry until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towel.
  • You can either use store brought chips and cook them by packet directions or make your own chips.
