Grandpa Cornish's deep fried fish

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 10 mins

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.

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.

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