How to make your own beer batter

The best thing about this recipe is that it is not only simple and delicious, but you will probably have all of these ingredients in your cupboards.

This recipe serves 8, but you can increase or decrease amounts to suit whatever party size you have.

Simply mix all the dry ingredients together with the egg and slowly add the beer, stirring as you go. Don’t worry too much about remaining lumps, this just adds to the texture.

Create your own Battered Fish

Firstly, get your deep fat fryer going or heat a large saucepan of oil to 175 degrees Celsius. The oil should be deep enough to immerse your fish.

Cover your fish in flour, making sure it coats the outside

Submerge the fish into your batter

Fry in the oil for 3-4 minutes until golden brown (Do this in batches to not overcrowd the pan)

Once cooked carefully remove and place into a bowl (covered in paper towel) and season with salt

Accompany with chunky chips, mushy peas and some tartar sauce.
