lower it in hot oil and fry fillets in batches until golden brown. Remove from the oil and

set aside.

2. Cut potatoes into wedges. Place into cold water until ready to fry.

3. Drain water and dry wedges thoroughly.

4. Working in batches, fry wedges for 10 minutes. Drain on a wire rack over a sheet pan,

and repeat with the remaining wedges.5. Turn the fryer up to 375° and fry potato wedges again for 2-3 minutes or until crispy and

golden brown. Remove from oil and place on a wire rack.

6. In a small saucepan add the butter and olive oil and melt over medium heat.

7. Reduce the heat to low and add the garlic and cook for 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and

add in chopped parsley.
