How to make it

  • Dissolve the yeast with a little of the beer
  • Once it has mixed to a paste, slowly add the rest of the beer, stirring continuously
  • Sieve the flour & salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre
  • Pour in the beer & yeast mix & whisk into a batter
  • Leave covered for about an hour at room temp before using
  • Dust the cod with flour, coat with the beer batter & fry until golden
  • Serve with homemade tartare sauce, homemade chips & a good cold beer & as you feel you are being aquainted with an old friend, a good rendition of 'old lang zyne' might be go down well too:-))

    Getting ready for "Browns-Steelers" matchup tomorrow. Did a little tailgating. I had about 8 pounds of Lake Erie Perch, so I had to modify your recipe slightly. Even the few Steelers fans that were at the party wanted the recipe. I turned them on to the website, even though most Steelers fans cannot read.
