This past weekend we took a mini vacation to Stockbridge, Massachusetts. It was a great time with plenty of fun driving, good eating, and a heavy dose of Norman Rockwell. During our stay at the The Red Lion Inn, we had a phenomenal plate of southern style fish and chips. They used catfish with an airy, crunchy, baking powder batter and instead of regular "chips" they had spicy sweet potato fries. We ate like kings, and paid like them too. So when we got home we were inspired to try and replicate their crispy batter. Our take is definitely more Cajun
inspired than the original, but we think this dish is pretty easy and a lot of fun... not to mention a close second to the Red Lion Inn version. Enjoy!
