Cut each slice again to make 1/4-inch French fries. Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer to 350 degrees F. Add the potatoes to the fryer and cook for 3 minutes, then remove from the pan and shake off all fat. Set to one side. To make the batter: Sift the flour into a bowl and add remaining ingredients with a pinch of salt. Beat well until smooth. Set aside until ready to use. Cook the potatoes again in the oil for 5 minutes or so longer until they are good and crisp. Drain on paper towels and season with salt. Keep hot in a 200 degree F oven while you cook the fish. Dip the fillets into the batter, making sure they are evenly coated, and shake off any excess. Carefully lower the fish into the oil and cook for 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve with malt vinegar.
