This is the only recipe I use for beer battering now. The beer batter fried to be thin and crispy. I do add more flour to make it a bit thicker though.

Loved the recipe!! After I soak the halibut/lincod in the batter, I usually roll it in a Panko (Japanese style) bread crumbs and coconut mixture and then fry it. Delicious!!
