  • 2 Lbs. Cod (cut into filets, fresh or frozen and thawed)
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Beer Batter

  • 1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Seafood Seasoning (we use Old Bay)
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 12 Ounces Beer

Cooking Oil

  • 2 Cups Vegetable Oil


  • Set the fish out on a flat serving dish, and allow it to sit out for 10-15 minutes while you make the batter. Use a paper towel to dry the fish. Season the fish with salt and pepper.
  • Using a large, heavy-bottomed pan, heat cooking oil over medium heat.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder, and seafood seasoning. Add the egg, and then slowly add the beer. Whisk to combine, making a semi-thick liquid batter. (It should be thinner than pancake batter but thicker than buttermilk.) Set aside.
  • Working in batches, take a piece of fish, and dip it into the batter. Make sure to coat the fish evenly on all sides.
  • Place the fish into the hot oil. Cook until golden brown then remove to a wire rack to cool. If necessary, flip the fish while cooking to ensure both sides brown evenly.
  • Serve hot with lemon slices, malt vinegar, tartar sauce, or dill sauce.
