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!

Our favorite "Fish & Chips" Recipe. Since I'm usually cooking for just the two of us we find the amount of batter to be excessive. But that can't be helped. How do you use half an egg? So now we plan on dividing the batter into quarters and using only what we need then freezing the rest for the next time.

REALLY good! My toddler loved it as well. We used Pyramid Snowcap and served it with sweet potato fries.
