"I love this recipe. My problem is with the measurements. who in the world would attempt to measure 4 cups of frozen would you go about doing that? Those fries come in ounce packages that you cook the whole thing or a handful. So, if you must do some measuring, then figure out how many ounces you want each serving to be allotted and use your trusty scales to do that or cook the whole thing and let everyone have as much as they want...but here arises another question...should I weigh before or after cooking? Get over it!

If you're cooking 4 servings I would use "16 ounce package, cooked according to package directions..." ('cause you can't have too many fries/chips with fish anyway) and, I don't believe 4 ounces of fries is too much! I apologize for this rant but it's like pre-heating the oven. How do you do a fire in it? (can't you just use the term "cook at 300" or whatever. If we're looking for stupidity, let the manufacturer answer the question of "where is the PREHEAT button?""

"Since the word "Chips" is included in the title I had expected a recipe for same to be included in this "British" recipe."

"I made this with Barramundi. Great basic recipe. I definitely recommend using the "tartar sauce" recipe found here in the TOH Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce recipe. It's the BEST I've found! -"

"Absolutely delicious! Loved the crunchy coating. I substituted sweet potato fries for the steak fries and sprinkled malt vinegar on both my fish and chips."

"I really liked the crusty salmon and the flavor combination was good. It was easy and quick and I am always looking for different ways to dress salmon. I would make this again for sure."

"My husband and I loved this. I used Swai instead of the salmon to fit our preference for a more mild fish. This was quick and easy and when I made fish again a few days later my husband asked why I didn't use this recipe again? I think this is a go to fish recipe from now on. I added an extra five minutes of cook time for the fries and used Red Robin fries that I purchased in the frozen section. This was a nice casual dinner!"
