  • 6 Pieces Atlantic Cod
  • 2 Cups All Purrpose Flour
  • 1 Tbl Baking Powder

  • 1 1/2 Cups Cold Guinness Beer

  1. PREPARING THE BATTER: Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Include any optional seasoning, if desired, at this point. Next, mix in 1 1/2 cups cold Guinness beer and sir until a smooth batter is formed.
  2. PREPARING THE FISH: Pat the portioned Atlantic Cod dry with paper towels. Dust both sides of the fish pieces with cornstarch and shake off excess. Dip each portion of fish in the batter and carefully drop and fry in a heavy, cast iron pan with the oil heated to 375 degrees.
