The best battered fish you will ever have!


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4 flat head fillets (de-boned)
  • 1 1/3 cup self-raising flour (sifted)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 bottle Coopers Pale Ale
  • Vegetable oil

Method

  1. Combine the sifted flour and salt in a jug (approx. 2 litre capacity) then gradually add the beer using a whisk to stir until well combined and pancake consistency. Season well with salt and pepper.
  2. Add vegetable oil to a large, deep non-stick fry-pan (approx. 2 inches deep) and heat to a moderate temperature.
  3. Dip the fish fillets into the batter and place into the oil for approximately 5 minutes each side. Turn carefully using a slotted spatula.
  4. Once the fish has been cooked on both sides, remove from the fry-pan and place on paper towel to soak up any excess oil.
  5. Serve immediately with oven baked wedges, fresh lemon wedges and a garden salad.

  • I agree asplendiferouslife what’s not nutritious about this …yumm yumm
    and if you are worried about the white self -raising flour just use wholemeal or try oat or quinoa …the list is great and guarantees an empty plate.

  • Can be tasty for adults, but not the most nutritious and not so suitable for children


    • My girls loved it and you’re getting nutritional benefit from the lovely fresh fish.

  • Had forgotten about beer batter for cooking. Might need to pinch a bottle from my son as we do not have any beer drinkers here. Beer battered chips are great too, use to get them from a fish’n’chip place called Busy Bee in my childhood.
