salt and vinegar fried fish and chipolte sweet potato "chips"

it was a wonderful day out so i thought I would make fish and chips.. sit out on the back porch and enjoy the amazing weather on sunday.. pete invited jimmy over so it was a nice meal.. I got the idea for this recipe here... and much to my surprise i followed it pretty closely.

oven fried fish

prep time: 15
cooking time: 18 minutes
servings: approx. 4


4 cod filets (pete didn't buy cod he bought whitling fish i had never heard of it but it worked out just fine)
2 eggs whites (whisked)
2 cups crushed salt and vinegar potato chips

preheat your oven to 425 degrees (f).. line a baking sheet with parchment or foil and lay a wire rack on top, spraying it with pam.. add potato chips to a zip lock back and crush into pieces.. (I think a mini food chopped/processor would have worked better)  season fish with pepper.. dip each fillet into the egg white mixture then dredge through crushed potato chips pressing to make sure the chips stick.. lay on the wire rack and speay each filet with pam.. bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown..

(the beer is woodchuck hard cider - amber.. oh my word is it yumm)
