Is there anything better than a good ol’ pub-style plate of fish and chips? We think not. Our chefs take the classic duo up a notch: Tilapia is shallow-fried in a light tempura batter, then served with potato wedges on the side. Plus, you’ll make not one but two special homemade sauces: your very own tangy tartar sauce and curried ketchup. Now all you need is a pint of beer to wash down all the pub-tastic flavors.

Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. Cut potatoes into ½-inch-thick wedges. Finely chop pickle until you have 2 tsp (4 tsp for 4 servings). (Use the rest of the pickle as you like.) Toss potatoes on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Roast on top rack until golden brown and crispy, 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, sour cream, chopped pickle, 1 tsp vinegar (we sent more), ½ tsp sugar, and ¼ tsp horseradish (we sent more). (For 4 servings, use 2 tsp vinegar, 1 tsp sugar, and ½ tsp horseradish.) Season with salt and pepper. TIP: Taste and add more horseradish if you like extra heat. In a separate small bowl, combine ketchup and ¼ tsp curry powder (½ tsp for 4). (Be sure to measure the curry powder.)
In a large bowl, whisk together tempura mix, half the Fry Seasoning, ⅓ cup cold water (⅔ cup for 4 servings), and ½ tsp salt (1 tsp for 4) until smooth. TIP: If needed, add water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a pancake batter-like consistency. Pat tilapia* dry with paper towels, then quarter into large pieces. Season all over with remaining Fry Seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add to bowl with batter; gently stir until evenly coated. Line a plate with paper towels and set aside.
Heat a ⅓-inch layer of oil in a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering and hot enough that a drop of batter sizzles when added to the pan, add tilapia and cook, until crust is golden and fish is cooked through, 2-3 minutes per side. (For 4 servings, fry fish in batches and, if necessary, add more oil between batches, waiting for oil to get hot before continuing.) TIP: The smaller pieces will cook faster. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Lightly season with salt. Divide fish and chips between plates. Serve with tartar sauce and curried ketchup.
