Readers Respond: Fish and Chips - Salt, Vinegar, Mayo. What do you like on yours?

Responses: 23


I like my fish and chips with just salt, my husband loves vinegar, some people like mayo but that's not for me. What do you put on yours, maybe nothing?

Salt and vinegar

Salt and vinegar are the only things you should ever put on fish and chips. Anything else destroys the meal utterly. The purist

Malt vinegar of course! Couldn't imagine eating fish & chips without it. Yummy ;)

Gravy Baby

Got to love mushy peas and gravy mmmmmmmm....... or.curry sauce :)
—Guest David

Balsamic Vinegar

Balsamic vinegar as an alternative to malt is really nice, and it gives the chips a cool rustic brown look. So Balsamic and sea salt on chunky chips and light beer battered cod. Small portion size though as even a small portion is minimum 700 calories.

A blob of Mayo, same of Ketchup. dip into Mayo then Ketchup for the best tasting chipper chips :)

I always eat my battered fresh roe (it has to fresh NOT tinned) and chips with the traditional salt and malt vinegar while watching Dr Who!

I'm originally Canadian, but like my F&C the Brit way with Salt and Malt Vinegar!

Ketchup on fish and fries (ketchup is NOT tomato sauce) I'm american. Message from Elaine Lemm: Hi Dorothy, Here in Britain, we often call ketchup tomato sauce, so it gets a little confusing.
