I hated fish growing up. Well, not those gross, processed fish sticks dipped in loads of ketchup (I still actually like those gross fish sticks!) and my mom's Beer Batter-Dipped Fish. I make it for my family and since today is Good Friday I figured this was a good family recipe to share.
Beer Batter-Dipped Fish
2 eggs, separated
1/2 c. beer (light beer is best)
1/4 c. milk
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Fish (I use cod)
Whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. In another bowl beat the yolks; add the flour, beer, milk, salt and pepper and beat together. Fold in the egg whites.
Heat canola oil until thermometer reaches 375 degrees (F). Dip fish into batter and drop into hot oil in batches. Deep fry until golden. Remove to paper towel-lined plate to drain.
There isn't a lot of salt in this recipe. You may want to increase the salt in the batter to your taste after the first time you make the recipe.
