Halibut Fish and Chips - My Favourite Take-Out



We don't have Take-Out often.  Not because I'm against take-out.  I'm all for  take-out.  Unfortunately though, we live in an area where the take-out  that is available is either  really bad Chinese or really bad pizza.  Hence the reason I make both of those myself.     Thankfully my favourite take-out -  Fish and Chips - is within a 5 minute drive.  Halibut is the only kind of fish I want as Fish and Chips.  Many similar places also offer Cod and sometimes Haddock, but Moe and I both grew up on Halibut Fish and Chips and only Halibut will do.


The Mill Bay Fish and Chip Restaurant  makes a nice light crispy batter for their fish.  And, their fries are hand cut.  The batter is not at all doughy like some others, and the halibut is  delicious and succulent  with a meaty but large  flakey texture.  For me, no other fish comes close to Halibut.

There are a few ways that I will prepare halibut, but when it comes to fish and chips we either go out for them or order them in.

  5. When I am hungry for fish and chips it has to be halibut. Wish I had a good take out place close by. It's one of those things I don't make at home. OMG, it looks so good.

  6. I agree with you - Halibut is the best, and I loooove fish and chips! Yum, I could go for a basket full right now. I'm making goulash for tonight, one of my favorite meals, but your fish and chips pictures have got me wanting that instead!!
    Have a fun week!
    Come back soon for another visit.

  7. That post made me cry, the fish and chips look divine! I hanker for UK fish & chips and those look just like from our local (my home town) which I visited last year. I no longer do take out fish and chips because they are just not the same where I now live.

  9. Thank you all for your comments.

    Sarah, Halibut Fish and Chips seem to be hard to come by in the US unless you live on the west coast. It is the one food I missed when we live outside of Canada.

    Cathy,I'll cook halibut a number of different ways, but like you when we want fish and chips we either go out for them or get take out.
