Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Thaw fish, if frozen. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, milk, ale, egg, salt and pepper until combined. Cover and chill batter for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Rinse fish under cold running water; pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish crosswise into eight pieces. In an 8-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat for 2 minutes.

  • Dip four pieces of the fish in the batter, turning to coat and letting excess batter drip off. Fry the fish pieces in the hot oil about 4 minutes or until golden brown and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once. Transfer fried fish to paper towels; let stand to drain. Place fish on a baking sheet; keep warm in the oven. Repeat with remaining fish pieces.

  • Serve fish with malt vinegar and, if desired, garnish with Fried Parsley.


Tip: After cooking fish in the oil, add several sprigs of fresh flat-leaf parsley to the hot oil. Cook until parsley is no longer bubbly. Using a slotted spoon, remove parsley from oil. Drain on paper towels.
