Homemade Beer Battered Fish

I did not have fish and chips until I met my husband many years ago. As an avid fisherman, this was his go-to after a fresh catch! As the years wore on, I learned how to make his beloved recipe for Homemade Beer Battered Fish and Chips!

When fresh fish isn’t available, a simple white fish works great.

I hope you will make our Homemade Beer Battered Fish and Chips recipe with your friends and family! 

How to make Homemade Beer Battered Fish:

To get started, in a deep bowl combine flour, paprika, salt and pepper.

In another bowl, whisk up an egg and a can of beer together.

Coat the fish fillets in the flour, shake off and then dip into the beer batter. 

A tip I learned many years ago was to let your fish sit in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes. It really helps the batter stay on your fish!

When you are ready to cook your filets, heat oil in a heavy pan and then fry the filets until they are golden brown, turning once. 

Drain your fish on a plate coated with paper towels. While they are fresh from the pan, drizzle with lemon juice, salt and pepper.

We make homemade tartar sauce to go with this recipe. It’s so easy! Just mix together mayonnaise and sweet chopped relish!

Tried this and I have to say, although I have never made my own beer battered fish before, this recipe is just so good I will probably never go back to getting it from a restaurant again! Yum!
