BEER BATTERED FISH
Beer Battered Fish is a classic pub food dinner made with fresh cod that’s dipped into a batter of flour, eggs, beer, and seasoning, then fried until it’s crispy and golden brown on the outside and flaky on the inside. I like to serve this with crunchy potato chips or fries and a big spoonful of tartar sauce with lemon wedges.
HOW DO YOU MAKE BEER BATTER FOR FISH?
The flavor for this dish comes from the seasoning and the beer. I prefer to use a dryer stout, but use whatever beer you’d also like to drink. You can also use more or less seasoning depending on taste.
WHAT IS THE BEST OIL FOR DEEP FRYING FISH?
Canola oil and peanut oil have the highest smoking point, which means you have less chance of burning the oil if it gets too hot. I like to use canola oil, because that’s what I usually have around the house, and it doesn’t impart any flavor to the fish.
HOW LONG DO YOU FRY BATTERED FISH?
Each piece of fish will take about 10 minutes to fry, 4-5 minutes on each side. Work in batches, making sure the fish has enough room around each side to fry properly.
