Origin of Battered Fish And Chips

Fish and chips is a popular hot dish consisting of fried fish in crispy batter, served with chips. The dish originated in England.

Fried fish was likely brought to the UK by Spanish and Portuguese refugees during the 16th century.

A fish and chips shop was opened in London in the 1860s by Joseph Malin, who came from a family of rug weavers that needed to supplement their income.

Fried fish was first introduced and sold by East End Jews, while chips first took off in Lancashire.The story of the chip goes back to the 17th Century to either Belgium or France, depending who you believe. The coming together of deep-fried 'fish 'n' chips' as an inexpensive takeaway meal was, in fact, initiated by the English.
