Versatile Beer Battered Fish Recipe Inspired By Alton Brown

See More Seafood and Shellfish Recipes Organized by Type of FishWhen it comes to beer battered fish recipes, it just doesn’t get much more versatile than this wonderful recipe for Beer Battered Fish Inspired by Alton Brown from the folks at The Way the Cookie Crumbles.

Using this recipe, you can hold a fun fish fry at home featuring your favorite whitefish (tilapia, pollock, cod, etc.), so it’s very easy to add your own personal touch. Making this recipe is also a great excuse (er, reason) to cook with your favorite dark beer.

You can make this with classic French fries to capture the traditional fish and chip experience, or if you prefer, you might want to serve Panko Breaded Green Bean French Fries or Mexican Style Sweet Plantain Fries instead for a nice change of pace.

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Dash Old Bay Seasoning
1 bottle brown beer, cold
