It’s Saint Patrick’s Day, and you’re probably thinking about whipping together some corned beef and cabbage, but what if we told you that corned beef and cabbage isn’t an Irish tradition? But do you know what is an Irish tradition and favorite? Fish & Chips!

Just like Americans enjoy going to the bar and enjoying a nice side of wings, the Irish enjoy going to the pub and enjoying a cold brew with a fresh side of Fish & Chips. 

If you’d like to authentically celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, then we recommend indulging in some Fish & Chips.

What Is Fish & Chips?

Fish & Chips is such a popular dish, that we’re sure you’re already familiar with it, but if you aren’t, then you’ve been missing out! Fish & Chips is a hot dish, which consists of battered and fried fish accompanied by “chips,” otherwise known as french fries. In Ireland the dish is often topped off with salt and vinegar.

The History of Fish & Chips

Though the dish originated in England, it became incredibly popular in other countries, more notably in Ireland. The first Irish fish & chips were sold by an Italian immigrant name Giuseppe Cervi, who accidentally unboarded a North American-bound ship at Queenstown (now Cobh) in County Cork in the 1880s and walked all the way to Dublin. He began by selling homemade fish & chips outside of pubs, and eventually found a permanent spot in Great Brunswick Street (now Pearse Street).
