    Not-2-Sweet's Note:

    I LOVE fried fish.. always have. When dining out, nine times out of ten, I will order fish n'chips. It's getting to be very hard to find a restaurant that serves good fish n'chips anymore..So I just had to learn to make them myself.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Sift together flour, salt, and paprika.
    2. 2
      Stir in enough beer to make batter so it is barely thick enough to coat a spoon. Usually somewhere between one and two cans.
    3. 3
      (It may look too thin, but you want it that way, if it's too thick, the batter will be chewy instead of light and crunchy) Set batter aside while you heat your deep-fryer or deep pan of oil to 375 degrees. Use a candy thermometer if you need to.
    4. 4
      Peanut oil is best but any vegetable oil will do.
    5. 5
      Cut the cod fillets diagonally into 2 inch wide strips, and remove any pin bones from fish.
    6. 6
      Lightly coat fish in flour and shake off excess. This will allow batter to stick to fish.
    7. 7
      When oil is heated, dip fish in batter, let excess drip off, then fry fillets 2 or 3 at a time until golden brown.
    8. 8
      Drain on paper towels.
    9. 9
      Serve with fries and tartar sauce.

      This was my first time making battered fish and it was definetly a hit! I fed my fiance' and brother and both ate so much they "had to go lay down".. They told me to make sure I kept this recipe around! I added 1/4 cup of cornstarch to the 1/2 cup of flour like another review said and it was perfect. Thank you for this recipe!

      This is SOOOOOO good!!! I wish there was more than 5 stars!!!!! I've made this batter several times. I added 1/4 c. cornstarch to the dredge flour...(have NO idea where I got the from, but it does work!) & I doubled the salt in the batter. One bottle of beer is perfect!!!
      Tonite, I deep fried a pound of cod, made onion rings & battered mushrooms, too....gonna try some deep fried WI cheese curds, next time!!!!!

      Made this today for dinner. Used pollack. Fish was great, really easy and very light crisp. I used 3/4 cup flour and 1/4 corn starch. The next time I make it I will use a little more salt. Makes a lot of batter. Made onion rings. Really Good!. Will make again. Make sure you have a lot of paper towels to drain oil from food.
