One other tip to insure crisp beer batter fish is to never drain on paper towel, always on a wire rack. Placing any hot fried food on paper towels will steam the batter fry and make it less crispy. Love the other tips as well. If you have trouble having the batter stick during frying, place battered food in freezer for 12-15 min and remove to the hot oil immediately.
This battered fish recipe came out exactly how I had in mind. I followed the recipe exactly, except, to my dismay, realized I had no beer in the house. (Unheard of in this household.) Since all was ready to go, I used non-fat milk instead, and it still tasted great and was perfectly crispy. The only change I would make next time is to have beer on hand!
I followed the recipe exactly . I wouldn't recommend a single change. It was GREAT. This is now my "go to" recipe for any kind of breaded meat. I Finally found out how to make a truly crispy breaded fish! One suggestion....don't store your left overs in a zip lock bag. It makes them soggy. I made that mistake with the first batch I cooked. The second batch, I stored in a glass dish lined with paper towels. It stayed fresh and crispy. Oh, I thickened the remaining beer batter, added some dill and garlic, and plopped it into the hot oil making some really great tasting fritters which I served with the fish instead of chips.
Made it according to recipe and it was fabulous! My only problem was leaving the fish pieces too large and batter perhaps a bit too thick. but it still came out better than our favorite fish restaurant. Made it with fresh Cod!
Exactly as advertised! Super crispy if you keep everything cold. I just put the dry ingredients and beer in the freezer for 10 minutes while the oil was heating up. Also added herbs to the batter for some flavour boost. I will definitely be using this recipe again when cooking fresh perch I just caught!
