Chip shop serves up deep-fried Christmas dinner – with battered sprouts

A chip shop is serving up a Christmas dinner where everything is deep-fried – even the mince pies and Brussels sprouts.

Dunkeld Fish Bar in Perthshire, Scotland, says its fatty festive treat is proving a huge hit with hungry punters.

Instead of the usual seasonal fare, staff are serving up turkey goujons, battered sprouts and carrots, alongside parsnip fritters.

They are served with a giant pig in a blanket – a battered foot-long sausage.

There is a even a deep-fried mince pie for dessert, along with a pile of chips.

Staff in Santa hats have been dunking the traditional ingredients in batter and dunking them in the shop’s deep-fat fryer.

Eager customers are flocking to get their hands on the speciality supper – costing £10 a time.

Sale proceeds are going to the Dunkeld community, with a visit from Santa and his reindeer planned for local children.

Fish bar owner Scott Davie, 43, said: "You get a whole sausage and all the trimmings.

"It’s really popular."

The shop boss launched the entire Christmas meal after his popular battered sprouts flew out the fryer last December.

Mr Davie, who runs the shop with his wife Shannon, said: "People think they don’t like Brussels sprouts, but they’re always overcooked.

"We do them from raw, and their natural moisture content cooks them through, and they are absolutely amazing.

"They are really, really good."
