Ingredients

  • 1 egg

  • 1 ½ cups beer

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pound cod fillets

  • 2 cups crushed cornflake crumbs

  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1 quart oil for frying

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, beat together egg, beer, flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place cod in the bowl, and thoroughly coat with the mixture.

  2. In a separate medium bowl, mix the cornflake crumbs and Cajun seasoning. Dip the cod in the crumb mixture, and thoroughly coat all sides.

  3. In a large, heavy skillet or deep fryer, heat the oil to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Fry the fish until golden brown, and flesh is easily flaked with a fork.
