Home Made Beer Batter Cod

I had fish and chips on the brain so I decided to make me some home made beer batter cod...here's what i did.

  • Get a couple pieces of fresh Cod (roughly a couple lbs)
  • In a bowl mix 2 eggs, 1 cup of flour
  • add 1 can of beer (i used some cheap lager i had in the 'fridge...next time i would use a stronger darker beer

  • add salt and pepper to taste

Get a pot or pan with oil up to temp....drop the fish in the batter...get it all nice a gooey... and slowly lower it into the oil....then watch it bubble in the oily love for a few minutes and watch it puff up in beer batter goodness. (Note: drop a spoon full of batter in the oil first to test the taste...i had to drop a couple in to make sure the salt and pepper was right)
Add some fresh cut baked chips, coleslaw and.....ahhhhh...home made fish and chips.


This is also a very inexpensive and fast meal. Prep time is all of about 10-20 minutes.
