Beer Battered Fish ‘N’ Chips
The rain has finally slowed down here in Summit County; although Fall is peaking her head in from time to time. It is hard to believe that it has already been a year since I left for my trip to SE Asia. I am trying to hold on to every ounce of Summer that I can! These Fish N Chips are literally the best I have ever had- even compared to restaurants!- and so easy to make!
You can use any type of beer you prefer, but the real secret lies in the flour. I use bread flour because it has higher levels of protein, which make the fish extra puffy! This was my first time using cod for this recipe and it was SO much better than any other fish I have ever used! Whole Foods has Alaskan Cod filets (frozen) for only $5 too! If you want to make the Potato Wedges with this recipe, you will find the recipe HERE.
Beer Battered Fish 'N' Chips
- 2-4 C canola oil
- 1 12 oz bottle of beer (I used White Rascal)
- 2 C bread flour
- 1/2 t garlic powder
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/2 t pepper
- 1 1/2 lb Alaskan Cod filets boneless, skinless, cut into strips
- Preheat the oil, in a medium pot, to 375F.
- Combine the beer, flour, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth.
- Dredge the strips of fish in a small amount of flour.
- Dip the strips in the batter, one at a time, and slip into the oil.
- Fry a few strips at a time, but be sure to heat oil back to 375F before adding more.
- Serve with potato wedges or chips.
