Chish and fips (and mushrooms)


You'll need

3 yellow-fleshed potatoes, such as Nicola, Charlotte or pink-eye (about 150gm each), unpeeled For deep-frying: vegetable oil 1 snapper fillet (about 800gm), pin-boned, skin scored into 8 pieces 1 tbsp olive oil 200 gm young Roman beans, tailed and halved widthways 50 gm butter, coarsely chopped 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 300 gm assorted mushrooms, such as wood-ear, chestnut and enoki, trimmed 1 tsp white wine vinegar 80 ml white wine
