Beer Battered Fish

  • Author: Debi


A perfectly light and crispy fish that perfect for a low carb.  When frying with olive oil be sure to not get it to a smoking point.  Coconut oil is also ok to use.



  • (2) 6 oz fillets of white fish (cod, haddock, sole work well, choose thicker pieces)


  • 1/2 Cup Flour (I’ve used both almond and tapioca)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 Organic egg, beaten
  • 1/4 Cup Beer (preferably full bodied like Guiness or a lager)


  1. Cut each fish fillet into about 4″ pieces
  2. Make the batter by combining all the ingredients and stirring well. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes
  3. When ready, coat the bottom of a large skillet with olive oil and heat over a med/med high heat until it splatters if you flick water on it
  4. Dip each fillet piece into the batter, coat well, and carefully place into the heated oil
  5. Depending on thickness, cook between 2-4 minutes per side
  6. Place on paper towels to drain and serve
