Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
- 2 lb cod fillets
- 1 3/4 cup flour + 1 cup for dredging
- 2 cups beer
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- Vegetable oil for frying
Pat the fish dry using a paper towel and season each cod fillet with salt and pepper.
Open the beer and let it sit for about 15 minutes so that all the foam evaporates. Then combine the flour and beer with a whisk.
Heat about 1 1/2 inches of vegetable oil in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium high heat.
Dredge each cod fillets in the flour then into the beer mixture and fry in batches. Flip each fillet with tongs when they start to turn golden brown.
Once the fillets are fully cooked, transfer to a dish lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
