Another place to go downtown Cincinnati is Nicholson’s Tavern & Pub. They are one of the few restaurants that have my favorite beer, Strongbow, and they have excellent fish and chips! Fish and chips are a popular meal that originates from the UK, Ireland, and New Zealand. It consists of beer battered fish deep-fried and served with French fries. It is a very yummy combination. I have only been to a few places where the fish and chips were excellent and Nicholson’s is definitely at the top of the list.
In the pursuit of living a somewhat healthy lifestyle, I decided to create a healthy version of fish and chips without all the oil and trans-fat. Instead of deep frying the fish, you bake it in the oven. Also, you coat the fish with corn flakes and dip it into egg whites instead of the entire egg. For the chips part, all you do is cut the potatoes into wedges and bake them. If you want you can use sweet potatoes but I don’t like sweet potato fries. It’s not my thing. If you like fish and chips as much as I do, you will enjoy this recipe as well.
