Ever wondered why fish is associated with Fridays? The tradition of eating fish on Fridays has religious roots, previously eating meat on a Friday was banned by the church to remember Good Friday, it is still observed by many Roman Catholics. Fish was also used as a secret symbol for Christians to identify each other when Christianity was banned by the Romans as many of the original disciples where fishermen. 

Where did fish and chips originate? 

The traditional British Friday treat was introduced by Jewish settlers to the UK who brought over the concept of frying fish in batter and oil from Spain and Portugal. The recipe proved popular with the first shop selling fish and chips called Malin’s opening in London in 1860, there are now over ten thousand shops in the UK.
