How to make it

  • Preheat oil to 375F.
  • Fry potatoes immersed in oil 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Remove from fryer and plate and cover in foil to keep warm until fish is ready.
  • Mix batter 5 minutes before removing potatoes from fryer. Remove beer, egg and flour from refrigerator just prior to mixing.
  • Bring oil to 350F after removing potatoes.
  • Wisk flour, beer, and egg in a bowl just until lump free and season to taste.
  • Dip fish in batter and fry in oil 5-7 minutes until batter is crunchy and golden.

  • Do not overload the fryer to maintain reasonable temperature.
  • Do not to burn down the casa or burn off your skin! You may need them after dinner.

    This recipe was amazing. So simple and yet extremely delicious. The fish was tender and crispy. Even my 7 year old asked for seconds and thirds. I will be making this again and again.

    Great recipe It's even better when using Samuel Smiths Tadcaster Oatmeal Stout for the batter.

    Sounds great! Most recipes would call from a brown beer, but I'm a stout person myself. Bet Wild Goose would work as a replacement.

    Good recipe but, personnally I would not use salmon in this recipoe, it's too sweet a fish to batter and fry. (just my opinion)
