3. To make fries, cut potatoes into thick matchsticks and spread out on prepared tray. Pat dry with absorbent paper.
4. Deep fry in small batches until golden and crisp. Drain on absorbent paper. Season with salt.

Notes

For an extra flavour hit, try making a flavoured salt. Grind salt flakes with some grated lemon zest and a little fresh dill or chilli flakes.

If you love the crunch of the batter, try cutting fish into smaller chunks and battering each piece.
