No Alcohol Alternative: If you want to make them child friendly just swap the gin for more tonic water!


  • 500g skinned white fish (cod, haddock, sole etc)
  • Sea Salt
  • Veg oil 
  • 200g plain flour 
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 25 ml of gin
  • 175ml tonic water 


  1. Make the batter by mixing together the baking powder, flour & salt. Then add the gin and half of the tonic water. Whisk until just combined as we want the batter to stay bubbly. 
  2. Chill for 30 minutes then add the rest of the tonic water. This should keep the batter light.
  3. For the fish goujons cut your fillets into decent sized chunks.
  4. Season them with salt and then coat in the batter. 
  5. Heat the oil until it is about 190'C then fry the goujons in small batches until golden brown. (About 2-3 minutes) 
  6. Serve and Enjoy! (We recommend serving with some delicious Tartare Sauce!)
