Some good beer-battered fish recipes include the Food Network's beer-battered fish and chips by Paula Deen and real English fish and chips with Yorkshire beer batter. Martha Stewart also provides a good beer-battered fish recipe.
Make Paula Deen's beer-battered fish and chips by first putting together a house seasoning that consists of 1 cup of salt, 1/4 cup of black pepper and 1/4 cup of garlic powder. Whisk 1 1/2 cups of sifted flour into 1 12-ounce bottle of beer, then mix in 1/2 teaspoon of the seasoning. Sprinkle salt and pepper over 1 1/2 pounds of cod fillets, dredge in the beer batter, and dip in 1/2 cup of flour. Fry the fish in a skillet of oil until it turns golden brown, then place on a paper towel. Fry 4 large baking potatoes cut into strips in oil for 10 minutes. Serve with the fish.
Real Yorkshire beer-battered fish calls for 6 ounces of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix the ingredients in a bowl, and mix in 8 fluid ounces of bottled British beer. Add malt vinegar or the juice from 1/2 of a lemon. Dip 4 cod or haddock fillets in the batter, and fry for six to 10 minutes.
