Fish ‘n’ Chips Beer Batter

Ah, those crispy hunks of batter-laden fish with a pile of homemade french fries! At home, Mom usually used cod fish fillets or sometimes halibut. The beer in this batter makes it light and extra crisp.

  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 pint beer
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 egg whites
  • fish fillets

Combine the flour, beer, and cooking oil, and let stand in a warm place for 20 to 30 minutes.

Add salt. Beat the egg whites stiff. Fold into the flour mixture. Dip fish in flour and then in batter. Deep fry until crisp and golden in a good quality, very hot oil.
