This is a great beer batter fish recipe, and is very easy to do. We often fish all day with friends, and then cook the fish afterwards out on deck. Yummy and great!

Great recipe. I had to modify rice flour & club soda for the beer to make it gluten free, and I added 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. I really like the consistency. Dredged fish in dry rice flour first & then battered. Batter coated fish really well.
