Beer Batter fish and chips

I was ready to start a twenty year quest for the best fish and chip batter. Having lived in England, I was batter spoiled. The first person I asked is an owner of a commercial shrimp boat. He felt he had the perfect recipe, which was handed down to him from another commercial fisherman. All I know is this is a party favorite and a way to feed a lot of people on a cold day. Your oil temperature is critical. I use a wok as it minimizes the amount of oil I use. Once cooked this batter also tastes better on the second day, so make leftovers.

1 part bisquick
1 part cornstarch
Your favorite beer mixed in to the correct consistency

Test the temperature of the oil by dripping a bit of batter in. This is not the healthiest fare, however, everyone will ask for the recipe and not believe you when you tell them. Enjoy.

Sounds super good man. Everyone loves fried fish! I just posted a fried fish recipe from the Southern US. I'm gonna try your recipe next fish I get. I haven't done beer batter in a long time.

Re: Beer Batter fish and chips

I use Bob's Redmill gluten free all purpose flour. Mix in a bunch of salt, pepper, smoked paprika and garlic salt. Add favorite beer.

I use a bunch of oil in a dutch oven. Much easier to control the oil temperature and I only fry a few pieces at a time. I try and keep the oil 350-360.

Re: Beer Batter fish and chips

I have switched to using a gas hurricane burner and fry everything up in a wok. The wok limits the amount of oil I use and allows me to cook for a party (5-6 pcs at a time). I use this recipe at least once a month and it is an absolute crowd favorite. Thanks for the input.
