Crispy Beer Batter Fish & Chips - Food Wishes

  • Published: 23 April 2019
  • Learn how to make Crispy Beer Batter Fish! All beer batter fish recipes are crispy right out of the fryer, but after a few minutes, most turn soft, and soggy, but that’s not a problem here. By following a few simple steps, your last bite should be just about as crispy as your first. Potato chips sold separately. Visit for the ingredients, more information, and many, many more video recipes. I really hope you enjoy this easy Crispy Beer Batter Fish & Chips recipe!

    Best results, and because I do not give a DAMN and learned it from a bona-fide Englishman Chef I worked for, is fry it in (super-refined)lard.

    Club soda is a nice substitute for the beer if you don't like the flavor.

        Thank you for this awesome recipe. I did it yesterday and I'm still drooling at the thought of it and I want it again... now...

        What I did different: Instead of chips I used sweet potatoes and made them into fries, I used Corn Starch to make them less suspectible to getting burnt and I put them in the same beer-batter as the fish, so they were crispy from the outside but juicy on the inside. I also used salmon, which were then similar to the sweet potato fries from the outside thin crispy but oh boy.. it was sooooooooooo juicy inside and perfectly cooked. I used pale lager ("Pilsner Urquelle") as the beer, and jesus christ was it awesome. I feel like I could eat this every day, but due to reasons like it being unhealthy af I can't - unfortunately.

                              Round here we use Guinness for any cooking. No, not that horribly watered down draught stuff they came out with a little over a decade ago, but real extra stout. The stuff you can make sculptures out of the head in your glass and they will last until after you finish your drink! :)

                                  The fish looks delicious. Very odd so serve it with crisps. Those are not the sort of chips that make up 'fish and chips'...

                                    In the UK some fish and chip shops give free 'batter bits' with your order. deep fried batter. It started extra for children from poor home. Bulking out meals

                                        A bit of hot sauce in tartar sauce is very good for this.
