  1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, garlic salt, garlic powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix in beer until no dry lumps remain. Dip the cod into the batter, allow some of the excess to run off, then carefully place into the deep-fryer. Cook until golden brown and crispy on the outside, and the fish is easily flaked, about 8 minutes. Cook the fish in several batches to avoid over loading the deep fryer.

Very Good! I was skeptical about the Cinnamon and actually only put a dab then added the whole 1/2 tsp. I will make this again.

This was pretty good but hubby didn't care for the cinnamon. I did dust the fish with flour before dipping it in the batter just to make sure the batter stuck to the fish.

This was delicious! Very simple and easy. Perfect!

Great recipe and worked fantastic on the pan fish my husband brings home from ice fishing. I did omit the cinnamon though and added some lemon juice instead. Terrific batter, everyone loved it!

This was insanely delicious! My children gobbled it up and didn't leave a single crumb. As did I. I used regular beer that I had on hand and fried it in my frying pan with lots of oil, didnt com...

Great and simple recipe, liked the cinnamon

this is almost like the batter at our favorite restaurant. Used it for our home grown zucchini strips too. YUM

This is how I will be frying fish from now on. Love the taste, cinnamon worked and did not make it sweet by any means. The cinnamon gives a wider range of flavor.
