Welcome back to the next journey of Culinary Frank’s Food Passport series!!! Throughout this July, we will travel to Great Britain – a country that has so many impacts to the world throughout history.
Not only well known for The Royal Family, The Beatles, William Shakespeare, mysterious Stonehenge, fabulous British cuisine is also something their citizens take great pride in.
Pub is another popular aspect in British culture. Pubs play a major part of every adult’s pastimes, it is pretty much a community gathering place, where you can go watch football, hang out with friends or simply for a nice cold beer. Some (like me) will even go to a local one, just for a crunchy portion of crispy battered Fish & Chips.
Today I am going to share with you Fish & Chips recipe, with beer as a special guest. With its carbonation, beer helps the batter become lighter and the result is crispy fish that you cannot say no to.

Fish & Chips
Serving 2 people
|Prep time||Cook time|
|15 mins||10 mins|
|All purpose flour:||2.5 cup|
|Rice flour:||1/2 cup|
1. First we make tartar sauce, using 1/4 of a onion (around 50g) cut into small dices, pickle cut into small dice as well, roughly chop up the caper. Combine everything with mayonaise and squeeze in juice of 1 lemon, mix up and keep in the fridge until serve.
2. Divide the all purpose flour into 2 part ( 1 cup & 1.5 cup). Mix 1 cup of all purpose flour with garlic powder, salt and pepper for seasonning, this will be used to coat the fish before batter it.
3. Combine 1.5 cup of all purpose flour with the rice flour. Measure the beer then slowly add to the flour mixture. Whisk to combine.This will be our beer batter. Note: Make sure your beer is cold and you can use any type of beer you would prefer, I used Budweiser.
4. Cut the fish fillet in half. Coat the fish in to coating mixture, shake off the excess flour. Then dip it into the batter. Make sure it is nicely coated. Tap the fillet on the side of the bowl to remove excess batter.
5. Fry the fish at 180*C for around 8-10 mins (depend on the thickness of the fish). Flip it occasionally for even cooking.
6. After the fish is cooked, let it cool down and drip of the excess oil on a cooling rack.
7. Serve the beer battered fish with some chips and tartar sauce. Your Fish & Chips is done !!! Enjoy !!!
