Beer Battered Halibut


One of my favorite meals is Beer Battered Halibut and Fries, and my husband makes the BEST in town! Last night he made them for me. He fries the potatoes twice, they were awesome, crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. We used my handy Mandolin to make the fries.

We ended up starving and ate all the fries and forgot to take pictures, so you have to satisfy yourselves with the Halibut part of the meal, which was incredible as well!

I even made home made tartar sauce, I will never purchase store bought again, it was that good and soo easy!

1 to 2 lbs Halibut or Cod, we used Halibut
1 beer a fairly light one
Canola oil for frying
1 cup of flour, add salt and pepper
Any commercially sold Beer Batter Mix (normally found near the fish counter at your local grocery store)

Prepare the Beer Batter as directed on the box. Heat your oil to 375 degrees, dredge the fish in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess, and then into the Beer Batter.

Fry the fish in preheated 375F oil until cooked, about 4-5 minutes.

You can hold the fish in the oven at 170 degrees while you make the rest (place on a cookie cooling rack in the oven)

Tartar Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbl chopped capers
  • 2 tbl dill relish
  • 2 tbl lemon juice
*you could add dried dill but my man hates dill, so we omitted it*

I love fish and chips, but then I would wouldn't I? It being my national dish. Though, by all accounts, it has now been usurped by chicken tikka masala, which I also love.

This looks great, Cheryl. I always twice fry my chips too.
