Dilis and Chips with Tartar and Honey Dip

Dilis and Chips with Tartar and Honey Dip
Dilis and Chips with Tartar and Honey Dip. In the tradition of fish and chips, I would like again to share this innovative dish that uses crispy fried fresh dilis instead of the usual fish fillet. Sometimes when we see small anchovies in the fish market we always wonder what is the best method of cooking it. For a change I tough I could have it with potato fries.

Fried fish are best served with tartar dip, again I also innovate the dip to adapt to the Pinoy preference of sweet food. To make that sourly tartar dip sweeter I blended it with honey. All I needed was some potato fries you may want to fry them yourself using the ready to fry chips from the supermarket or buy a large serving of French fries, I just bought the a large serving of chips from a fish and chips store. Here’s how I made my Dilis and Chips with Tartar and Honey Dip, enjoy.

  Tartar and Honey Dip


1/4 kilo fresh small size anchovies, wash and drained
1/4 cup cornstarch
salt and pepper to taste
chili powder (optional)
cooking oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges
1 large serving, French fries, chips tartar sauce

  Dilis and Chips with Tartar and Honey Dip - Cooking Procedure

Cooking procedure:

Dust the anchovies with salt and pepper to taste. Dust some chili powder if using then squeeze half of the lemon over the fish and toss until all the fish are evenly coated. Let sit in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 10 minutes. When ready to fry mix in the cornstarch and toss until all the fish are uniformly coated. In a deep fryer deep fry in batches the fish, making an effort not to keep the fish from sticking to each other for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp. Drain in kitchen paper towels.

To make the dipping sauce mix and blend 2 parts of tartar and 1 part of honey. To serve, in a big platter arrange side by side the chips and fried dilis, drizzle with the remaining lemon and serve with the prepared dipping sauce.
