These delicious crispy morsels of Fable are crispy, crunchy and join forces with a lemon chive mayonnaise to bring you a match made in heaven.



  • 200g plain flour 
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • ½ tsp white caster sugar 
  • ½ tsp salt 
  • 330g chilled beer 
  • Grapeseed oil, for deep frying 
  • 220g Fable 
  • Sea salt flakes, to serve  

Lemon chive mayonnaise:

  • 250g mayonnaise (sub vegan, if preferred) 
  • 20g chives
  • 2 tsp lemon juice 


  1. Place the flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Mix well to combine. Slowly pour in the beer, gently whisking the mixture to ensure there are no lumps. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep pan to approx. 180°C, no more than half full.
  3. Add the Fable to the batter, coating the pieces well. Remove and allow excess batter to run off, then gently lower the pieces into the hot oil. Fry for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Remove and set aside on a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain. Season with sea salt flakes.
  4. Serve the fritters with the lemon chive mayonnaise, which can be made by simply combining mayonnaise with freshly chopped chives and lemon juice.
