The beer’s carbonation makes the batter super light and airy. However, it still has a great crunch. You’ll physically hear it when you bite into these bad boys.

Don’t worry if you don’t like the taste of beer, it cooks out when you fry these.

Fish and chips are traditionally served with malt vinegar over the top. However I like mine with a squeeze of lemon and a generous amount of tartar sauce.

Beer Battered Cod Shopping Tips: 

  1. Cook with whatever beer you like to drink. I used Guinness because it’s what I had on hand.
  2. If you don’t use alcohol, seltzer water will give you a similar light, airy texture.
  3. If you can’t find cod, halibut or would also work great.
