Chippy Offers The 'World's Spiciest' Fish And Chips
Think you can handle hot food? Well, one chippy in the UK is offering what they claim is the world's spiciest fish and chips. In fact, they think it's so hot that anyone who wants to buy it has to sign a waiver.
Millers Fish and Chips, in Haxby near York, reckon that their flaming fish supper is enough to defeat even those who are most tolerant to spices.
Basically, it consists of a fillet of fish coated in ten different spicy ingredients including chilli powder, dried chillies, cayenne pepper, chilli flakes - you get the idea - and then doused in hot sauce and chillies.
You also get a few of Seabrook's Scorchin' Hot Trinidad Scorpion Chilli Crisps - thought to be the hottest crisps on the market.
If you want to get a taste of this fiery Friday night special, it will set you back £6.50 for a normal-sized portion. Just remember that you'll also have to sign the disclaimer before you tuck in so that Millers aren't responsible for the consequences.
Millers chippy owners, Nick and David, the father and son team behind this madness, have been developing their recipe for about a month - including testing it out on their staff - but are now ready to unleash it on the unsuspecting public.
Nick, 29, said: "It's important to offer something a bit different now and again. We've ended up with a battered fillet which tastes incredible but is ridiculously spicy.
"I'm slightly scared to see what happens once customers start ordering it.
"We've already tried it out with a few customers who said they were lovers of spicy food and they were blown away by the heat.
"Anyone who orders will have to sign a piece of paper to say they don't hold us responsible for what might happen when they take a bite.
"Despite being incredibly spicy, the flavours are actually really nice so I'm hoping some people might actually enjoy it."
David, whose dad first opened the family business back in 1940, added: "This isn't quite traditional, but I think it's important to move with the times.
"It's exciting to try out new things and different recipes.
"I think what we've come up with is actually delicious, as long as you like a bit of spice."
A bit of spice? That sounds like an understatement.
It's probably decent, mind. Millers was named the best chippy in the UK in 2018 at the National Fish & Chip Awards. High praise indeed.
Marcus Coleman, the CEO of Seafish - the people behind the awards - said: "Nick, David and the team at Millers are always challenging the norm when it comes to delicious fish and chips.
"Since they were crowned the UK's best fish and chip shop in 2018, they've helped to break the mould of what people expect when they walk through the door."
Let's just hope that's all they break with their spicy chippy tea.
