Beer Battered Fish

One of my favorite ways to eat fresh fish. Having a lite batter is key. Use your favorite fish, we like northern pike. The kids love it!

Servings: 8

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes


- 2 lb fish fillets

-2 3/4 cup flour (1 cup for dredging)

-2 cups beer

-1 tsp seasoning salt (I use Alpine Touch)

-1/4 tsp ground pepper

-1/4 tsp ground red pepper for heat

-Vegetable oil for frying

Instructions -Pat fish dry using a paper towel and season each cod fillet with Alpine Touch and pepper.

-Open the beer and let it sit for about 15 minutes so that all the foam evaporates

-Combine 1 3/4 cups flour and beer with a whisk.

-On medium high heat 1 1/2 inches of vegetable oil in a large skillet

-Dredge fillets in the remaining flour then into the beer mixture

-When oil is ready add fillets

-Flip each fillet when they start to turn golden brown

-Wen the fillets are fully cooked, transfer to a dish lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil

-Great served with coleslaw and french fries

*Note: A great dipping sauce (or fry sauce) is mayo and ketchup combined until it's a light pink color
