  • Serve with a side of Idahoan Signature™ Russets Mashed Potatoes.

Cook's Notes:

Club soda can be substituted for the beer.

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

Easily a 5 star recipe! How can you go wrong with potatoes beer and Sriracha. Not being a fan of instant mashed potatoes I must say the Idahoan Signature Russets Mashed Potatoes are the real deal. Here's how I made mine: Dredge the fish in flour shake off the excess and dry on a wire cooling rack for approx 15 mins. or until dry to the touch. Add only enough beer until you get the right consistency to the batter. The oil temp is important so make sure you check it with a thermometer. 365-370 degrees works best for me. A deep fryer is highly recommended. Read More

nice recipe and all but it's kinda lame when a a company infiltrates on a certain platform just to promote their one product for a recipe. I understand that it's all recipes but it would b nice if they keep the recipes open to all general product/food item in the sense that you don't have to use a specific brand for the recipe.!

My 17 year old Boy Scout wanted to make beer battered fish for his cooking merit badge and I came across this recipe. He followed it almost to the letter; adding a dust of flour up front and then a dip in batter repeat on flour double dip in batter before pan frying in a cast iron skillet. He used a mix of halibut and cod and both came out spectacular. I was concerned the Sriracha might be a little spicy but it was not. It lifted the flavors perfectly. Served with tater tots instead of mashed potatoes it was a really tasty meal. 5 stars well earned. Read More

Can you go wrong with beer and Sriracha? No. This recipe rocks. Had to go gluten free so I used gf flour and gf beer and had to use chicken instead of fish-due to allergies but the recipe worked all the same. If you use gf flour be aware that you will probably need more beer. My batter needed a little over 1/2 cup more. Add the beer mix and wait. Then adjust as needed. It will depend on your flour blend. I also shook the chicken with some flour before putting it into the batter. I didn't have any issues of the batter sliding off. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Perfectly crispy fish. I seasoned my fish with smoked paprika Mrs. Dash(original) and cayenne pepper. I ve tried literally 50 other battered fish recipes and this one has ended my search for the best. Read More

This has wonderful flavor and using the Idahoan instant potatoes are surprisingly tasty. Much better than your typical instant potatoes. My only problem was I couldn't get the batter to stick to the fish.. The only was I was able to make it work was to get some extra flour out and dredge it in flour then the mix.. However... it was awesome tasting. I will make again and hopefully it works out better next time Read More
