In today's episode we're going to make really simple deep fried fish in a light crispy beer batter.
  • 330ml Beer
  • 180g Self-raising flour
  • 150g All-purpose flour
  • 800g Fish fillets of your choice (Hake is fine)
  • Salt and cracked black pepper
  1. Place the self raising flour, a generous pinch of salt, and very generous grind of black pepper in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Pour in the beer and stir this until you have a smooth batter. Put this aside for 30 minutes.
  3. Cut the fish fillets across the grain into strips of around and inch (25mm) in thickness.
  4. Half fill your wok or pan with oil and heat this to 160c or 320f.
  5. Dredge the fish pieces in the all purpose flour. This dries the surface of the fish and gives the batter something to hold onto.
  6. Dip the fish pieces in the batter one by one and carefully drop them into the oil. Fry the fish for 3 to 4 minutes until crispy and golden.
  7. Remove the fish from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  8. Serve the fish with crispy french fries, tartare sauce and lemon wedges.
