Beer Battered Fish Filets 

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes



  • 1 1/2 lb fish filets (Something white, flaky, but sturdy is good. Cod, halibut, and tilapia all work)
  • 1 1/2 cup flour (Plus a little extra)
  • 2 tbs corn starch
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tbs paprika
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 12 oz beer
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Heat oil to 365 F.

Combine flour, corn starch, cayenne, paprika, garlic powder. Whisk egg into the dry ingredients, then gradually mix in beer until a thin batter has formed. Let rest 5-10 minutes.

Pat fish dry, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Working in batches, lightly dredge the fish in flour, then dip into the batter to fully coat. Fry until both sides are golden brown and the fish is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
