Beer Battered Fish Fry

Mr. Food

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 10 min

  • 1 1/2 cups pancake mix
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 cup beer
  • 1 egg
  • Peanut oil for frying
  • 2 1/2 pounds white-fleshed fillets, cut into 2-inch pieces
  1. In a large bowl, combine pancake mix, sugar, salt, cayenne pepper, beer, and egg; mix well.

  2. Heat 1 inch of oil in a large deep skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking.

  3. Dip fish pieces into batter, coating completely, then fry in oil 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until coating is golden and fish flakes easily with a fork.

  4. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Serve immediately.

You can substitute club soda for the beer, if you prefer. If batter begins to thicken, just add a bit more liquid.
