The Rock Bottom Brewery near me has this. I've had it several times and have always enjoyed it. It's not "fish and chips" though. Two very different tastes.

I don't think I would like my salmon battered...I don't even like salmon croquettes. I generally prefer my salmon smoked, or as a sushi component. Not big on heated salmon.

You actually have that backwards. Salmon is very fatty and despite the fat it fries up fine as fish and chips.
Salmon is starting to show up on fish and chip menus all over these days.

I've made it, have battered and deep fried trout (similar) as well. It tastes OK but I wonder if our eyes and mouths just aren't programmed for what we think battered fish should look like?

I've had it as tempura, not a heavy breading that's meant to add flavor. Not bad but a waste of salmon that's fresh. Frozen fillets, OTOH? Yeah, it's OK with a teriyaki dipping sauce rather than a creamy tartar, but what would I dip my chips in? That's where salmon doesn't fit for me. Heavy flavors compete with the premium salmon taste.

Salmon's not really a bad idea, but it wouldn't be very good fried.


Grilled is a better, healthier alternative.

Fish and chips is historically a working class meal, and salmon isn't!

Deep fried whiting tastes pretty close to cod in my opinion...
