    14 people made this

    Serves: 4 

    • 5 cups vegetable oil for frying
    • 1/2 cup plain flour
    • 1/2 cup cornmeal
    • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 cup brown ale (such as stout or Toohey's Old)
    • 500g white fish fillets, cut into pieces

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 165 degrees C.
    2. Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, garlic salt, garlic powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix in beer until no dry lumps remain. Dip the fish into the batter, allow some of the excess to run off, then carefully place into the deep-fryer. Cook until golden brown and crispy on the outside, and the fish is easily flaked, about 8 minutes. Cook the fish in several batches to avoid over-loading the deep fryer.

    Very Good! I was skeptical about the Cinnamon and actually only put a dab then added the whole 1/2 tsp. I will make this again.  -  18 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was pretty good but hubby didn't care for the cinnamon. I did dust the fish with flour before dipping it in the batter just to make sure the batter stuck to the fish.  -  28 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
