    As a Brit who works in a chippy (fish and chip shop), i have to say those chips are far too dark and thin !!

    Hey Bab. Line cook for 6 years now. If you lay the fish the opposite way the fish wont curl up like that. You want to lie the fish rib side down if that makes any sense. Just a tip i thought I should share. Love your videos dude

  • TierZoo  (May 17, 2018))
