Active Time: 30 mins | Total Time: 60mins | Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 1,9 litres of vegetable oil for frying
  • 8 fish fillets (Hake or Kingklip)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 can or bottle of beer (350ml)

Short Instructions:

Step 1   

Heat oil in a deep fryer or cast iron pot to 185 degrees C. Rinse fish, pat dry, and season well with salt and pepper.

Step 2   

Combine flour, garlic powder, paprika, 2 teaspoons salt, and 2 teaspoons pepper. Stir egg into dry ingredients. Gradually mix in beer until a thin batter is formed. You should be able to see the fish through the batter after it has been dipped.

Step 3   

Optionally for extra thick and crispy batter pre-dip your dry fillets in flower before dipping in batter.

Dip fish fillets into the batter, then drop one at a time into hot oil. Fry fish, turning once until both sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and serve warm with a squeeze of lemon juice.
