Heather says: I don’t remember when I first stumbled upon the idea of Hasselback Potatoes, I do believe I was wandering around Pinterest.

Fish and Chips, Oven Fried Recipe

Heather says: While I will always prefer the beer battered and deep fried fish, this version is a close second and is much healthier. Nearly any white-fleshed fish will do: cod, walleye, or whiting for example. If you would like the chips done completely in the oven, follow the directions for these potato wedges, omitting…
