Fish and vegetable chips

I was racking my brains to think of another way to cook zucchini when I checked out Stephanie Alexander’s book – The Cook’s Companion – and she suggested deep fried in beer batter. Well I thought this wasn’t a bad idea because I had some nice sea bream, eggplants and peppers and I could beer batter and deep fry them all! I can’t remember the last time I made a beer batter so I used Stephanie’s recipe and added some cumin and Saharan spice (from Wilding’s Kitchen Essentials- I love that stuff) mix to spice it up a little. We had it with a salad and lots of mayonnaise and the verdict was we will definitely be having this again!
