Crispy Fish and Chips (Using Soda Water) with onion rings served with a side of tartar sauce tastes so good.

Fish and chips is a popular hot dish consisting of fried fish in crispy batter, served with chips. The dish originated in England, where these two components had been introduced from separate immigrant cultures; it is not known who created the culinary fusion that became the emblematic British meal.

All you need for this Fish batter is flour, salt, baking powder, milk, and Soda Water. Your result will be thinly-coated, crispy, and delicious.
