Pepper and salt on chips and fish

Why is salt and pepper in this order?


Did a group of people back in the day sit down and establish that ‘pepper and salt’ sounded awful? Does ‘salt and pepper’ only sound good because it has been the norm for so long?

I guess it is the same for good and bad, Mr & Mrs, fish and chips, tea and biscuits, Ant and Dec… Mixing up the ‘normal’ order sounds very odd.
