Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in deep-fryer to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • 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. Read More

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. Read More

I love cooking with beer. The first time I made this recipe I was cooking with whisky and well I passed out before I got the fish out of the box. I was able to delete the batter ingredients by going with Mrs. Pauls fish sticks. Gortons will work just as well. I tripled the beer and that was just about right as I was opening the last one just as the buzzer on the oven sounded. Read More

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! Read More

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 completely deep fry but it was super duper crispy. I also only used 1/4 tsp of cinnamon will try it with the full amount next time. I used tilapia fillets but I'm sure this can be done with any white fish fillets you have around. This will be on regular circulation in my house! Read More

Great fish batter recipe and a good reason to buy a 6-pack of Newcastle brown ale. Followed the recipe to the letter and my wife and I loved the finished product. We'll definitely try it again. Read More
