  • 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.
