Easy Beer Battered Fish12:53 PM
I must admit, I love Captain D's fish here in my town. It is so good, crispy with a somewhat buttery rich flavor. It is one of my guilty pleasures. Here in the south, fried fish is 99.9% cornmeal breaded and fried. If you want beer battered or battered fish, Captain D's is the only place you will find it. So I wanted to see how easy it was to make. I found some recipes online but thought, I wonder how pancake batter would work. I used buttermilk pancake mix and added in a can of Bud Light Lime. I used tilapia but you can use cod. I first dipped the cleaned fish into dry flour, then into the batter, I fried it in vegetable oil until golden brown. I removed from the grease and placed on a paper towel to remove excess oil. I served with fresh and crudely cut potatoes I fried in the oil as well until crispy.
This was seriously some easy and good eatin'!
