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 this homemade crispy coated Beer Battered Fish recipe with your friends and family! 

How to make Homemade Beer Battered Fish:

To get started, in a deep bowl combine your dry ingredients: flour, paprika, salt and pepper.

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

Dip 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.
