Description

Yummy beer battered fish, for those times you just need something fried!

Ingredients

  • 1 gallon Peanut Oil
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne
  • 12 ounces, fluid Cold Beer (Any Flavor You Like)
  • 1 pound Cod
  • 1 cup Cornstarch

Preparation

Heat oil in a Dutch oven or heavy pot until it reaches 350 F. While the oil is heating up, in a bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne. Whisk it together until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Add in your bottle of cold beer and mix until there are no lumps and you have a smooth batter. Park that bowl in the fridge while you cut up your fish.

Cut your fish into 1 1/2″ strips. Add the cornstarch into a flat dish (pie plate works awesome). Grab the batter from the fridge and set up a little assembly line…cornstarch, batter, and fish. Dip your fish in the cornstarch and shake off all excess. Next dip it into the beer batter to fully coat. Then carefully place the fish into the 350 F oil. Try not to drop it in quickly, otherwise it might sink. Work in small batches and fry 2-3 fish strips at a time so as to not bring down oil temperature. Remove the cooked fish from the oil using a kitchen spider and place on some paper towels while you finish frying the rest.
