If you are from the Philadelphia area or have ever been to the Jersey Shore, you have probably heard of Chickie and Pete’s Crab Fries.
You can’t walk down a boardwalk at the Jersey Shore without that signature aroma smacking you in the face. It’s incredible!
In fact, they are so popular that our local arena in northeast PA has even started selling them at their events.
These fries are killer. They are encrusted in Chickie and Pete’s signature spice blend and are over-the-top good.
I thought I would try my hand at recreating Chickie and Pete’s Crab Fries (or at least a close replica). And, what goes better with Crab Fries than beer battered fish?
This was my spin on the classic fish and chips and has quickly become on of my family’s favorite fish dinner recipes. The best part was the entire meal was ready in under 30 minutes and only required a few easy ingredients.
I used Sea Cuisine® Beer Battered Cod Fillets and Ore-Ida® Crinkle Cut Fries that I found at Sam’s Club.
I loved the crispiness of the fish. You can either fry or bake it. I chose to bake ours and it had this incredible crunch.
Sam’s Club features an amazing variety of easy-to-prepare, high-quality, sustainable seafood.

These fries tasted just like I had hoped. They were crispy and full of amazing flavor. One whiff and I was transported back to the Jersey Shore (if only it wasn’t 17 degrees outside!). You really must try this recipe!
I’m sure the original recipe is much more complicated than this but I’m pretty satisfied with the results.
