Beer Battered Fried Cod with Fresh Chips

4.5 from 2 reviews


  • 1 1/22 lbs cod cut in chunks
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 11 1/2 cups beer
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 34 medium russet potatoes thinly sliced


  1. Set 1/4 cup of flour aside on a shallow plate. In medium bowl combine 1 cup flour, 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, cumin, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Cajun seasoning (if adding), beaten egg and 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups beer depending on how thick you want the batter.
  2. Heat oil to 375 degrees.
  3. Dip fish pieces in flour on shallow plate and then into batter. Fry battered fish in the hot oil until browned, about 4 minutes. Place on paper towels while working in small batches.
  4. Fry potatoes in small batches until golden brown. Move to paper towels to drain. Lightly salt.


I fry about 3/4 of a potato at a time and 2 pieces of fish at a time.
I cut my fish in chunks that are about 1 inch thick and 2-3 inches long.
I love the Cajun seasoning but for those of you who like it more mild do not add it.
You can place everything on paper towels in a shallow metal pan in the oven at 200 degrees while you work.
