Beer battered cod fillets:
4 175g thick cod fillets
120g plain flour
100g rice flour
1 tsp baking powder
130ml soda water
1 tsp sugar
vegetable oil for deep fryer
In a large bowl, mix both flours, baking powder and sugar.
Add soda water, lager and salt.
Mix together only until the batter binds together and is smooth. Be careful not to over-mix.
Cover your fish with a dusting of plain flour, then drop into the batter and coat completely.
Pre-heat vegetable oil in deep fryer to 180C.
Once fish is coated with batter, gently place into the deep fryer and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden and crispy.
