  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup beer
  • 1 ½ lbs. white fish filets (cod, sole, haddock or halibut), cut into 2” strips
  • Tortillas, limes, cilantro, spicy coleslaw (recipe below)

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Fill a large pot with at least 3 inches of oil and heat to 350°.

    Meanwhile, combine the flour, chili powder, a pinch of salt, pepper and beer in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.

    Dredge the fish pieces through the batter and carefully place in the hot oil. Fry for 3-5 minutes, turning frequently, until golden brown in colour.
