I made the beer battered fish for the first time.

Growing up in the tropical country of the Philippines, I love eating fish. Any recipe that has a fish, definitely I eat it. My family loves to eat fish except my Summer Babe so I made her a different dish that Friday night.

Ingredients

  • 2 quarts vegetable oil for frying
  • 8 (4 ounce) fillets cod
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Rinse fish, pat dry, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Combine flour, garlic powder, paprika, 2 teaspoons salt, and 2 teaspoons pepper. Stir egg into dry ingredients. Gradually mix in beer until a thin batter is formed. You should be able to see the fish through the batter after it has been dipped.
  3. Dip fish fillets into the batter, then drop one at a time into hot oil. Fry fish, turning once, until both sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and serve warm.

I loved how it turned out though I used the tilapia fillets. It tastes delicious. Next time, I will only add half can of the beer. It makes it so watery. My family has the french fries and corn. Their Daddy also has the salad. I have the same except I have rice instead of french fries.
