Description

Crispy, delicious pan-fried fish (haddock, pollock or any white fish). Good with “chips!”

Ingredients

  • 6 pieces Haddock Or Your Choice Of White Fish (approximately 24 Oz.)
  • 1-½ cup Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ cups Milk
  • 12 ounces, fluid Beer (I Use Yeungling, But Go With Your Preference)
  • 1-½ cup Canola Oil, For Frying

Preparation

Rinse fish well under cold water and pat dry.

Begin heating oil in a cast iron skillet, or other heavy-bottomed frying pan, and proceed with the batter instructions.

Measure flour and salt into a medium mixing bowl. Add milk and about 1/4 of the beer, stirring until blended. Add more beer in small amounts, incorporating it into the batter until you reach your desired consistency. I use about 1/2 to 2/3 of the beer to get a pancake batter consistency.

When the oil has reached 325º (place a dollop of batter in the oil and if it sizzles immediately, you’re ready to fry), coat one piece of fish with batter on both sides and lay it carefully in the hot oil. Repeat with two more pieces of fish.

Fry fish for approximately 3 minutes, until the underside has turned a medium golden brown. Turn fish to cook the other side, approximately 2 minutes, or until it reaches that same golden color.

Remove cooked fish to a bed of paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining fish pieces.

Serve as you like, which in my case is with homemade tartar sauce on the side with fresh-made fries and cole slaw. Enjoy!

SO Good! What a great batter! I was impressed how it held up during the frying. It was crunchy, not too heavy, but very filling. Even made a fish sandwich for my son’s lunch today! Will use again! Thanks for sharing!

Fabulous! My family couldn’t believe that I had actually made this and it wasn’t frozen boxed fish! Delicious! Thanks so much!

I made these with tilapia because that was what we had. These were delicious. Everybody loved them. We had them on sandwiches but I will definitely make them again on their own.

I made these with cod, since that is what the fish lady recommended. I loved this recipe, but next time will use the fish you suggested, because the cod tended to fall apart once I moved it. Thanks for the great recipe!! I put it on my blog if you want to check it out:
