Deep Fried Beer Batter Fish
Better than Restaurant Quality Fish
12-16 panfish fillets @ 1/4 lb ea. (approximately)
3 cups extra fine ground corn meal
3 cups self rising flour (like bisquick)
2-3 eggs
1-6 bottles of DARK BEER(Important-use dark beer, Miller Special Dark works well)
2 tsp. savory
2 tsp. pepper
3-4 Tablespoons Dill Weed (IMPORTANT)
1 tsp. marjoram
1 tsp. salt (to taste)
3 Tbls. onion powder
2 Tbls. garlic powder
1 Large mixing bowl
1 deep fryer with oil heated to 350
Fish can be panfish, Salmon/Trout/Bass/Catfish Fillets cut 5-6 in. long, 2-3 in. wide and up to an inch thick

 

In mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients(including seasonings). Add eggs, open 2 bottles of beer, stir in until dry ingredients make a moderatly thick batter. Add/open more bottles of beer as needed. Batter should be thick enough to support fillets(float them).
Dip 2 fillets at once in batter, then remove, allowing some of the extra batter to drip off while holding above batter bowl with a fork.
IMPORTANT....FOR YOUR SAFETY
Place fillets in deep frying basket and lower gently into hot oil.
NEVER DROP THE FILLETS DIRECTLY INTO THE OIL-THE HOT OIL MAY SPLASH
AND BURN YOU!!!
Deep fry the fillets for 3-5 min. until golden brown. Place on cookie sheet in oven to keep warm until the rest of the fillets are done.
Serves 4+ hungry people.
Cooking time may vary with thickness of fish.
You can halve the batter for fewer fillets.
You may drink unused beer!! Enjoy!

Preparation Time: about 1 to 1 1/2 hours Serves: 4+
