Deep-fried sole with sautéed potatoes

Ingredients

For the deep-fried sole
For the sautéed potatoes

Preparation method

  1. Place the vegetable oil into a deep, heavy-based saucepan and heat until a small cube of bread sizzles and turns golden when dropped into it. (CAUTION: hot oil can be dangerous. Do not leave unattended.)

  2. For the deep-fried sole, place the flour, ice cubes and baking powder into a large bowl and gradually add enough cold sparkling water to make a thick batter. Season with salt.

  3. Dip the sole fillet into the batter and then carefully place into the hot oil. Deep fry for three minutes, or until golden-brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

  4. For the sautéed potatoes, heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the sliced potatoes and fry until golden-brown on all sides.

  5. To serve, pile the sautéed potatoes onto a serving plate. Top with the deep-fried sole and garnish with lemon wedges and parsley.
