Recipe by Kirste

My grandpa Cornish makes fried catfish with this recipe. I tried it with baby squid, YUMMMMM! I am not sure about the quantities, just use what looks right.

Very good fish recipe. I used tilapia fillets. It soaked for more than the 10 minutes and was great. Made for Bargain Basement.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix beer and egg.
  2. "Soak"fish (or whatever) in beer-egg mixture.
  3. Grandpa varies the soaking time, I wouldn't go less than 10 minutes.
  4. Heat oil in pan or deep fryer.
  5. Season pancake mix to taste with favorite spice mix.
  6. Take fish out of beer-egg mixture and dredge in pancake mix.
  7. Fry as normal.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste.
  9. I like to drizzle lemon or lime juice (or even vinegar) over before eating.
