Fish and chips is a popular snack in Europe that originated in Great Britain. The fish is dipped in a batter, which creates a light crunchy coating after frying. It is typically served with tartar sauce and mushy peas. In this version of fish and chips, I put a Japanese twist on the recipe by using Panko bread crumbs.
