When it comes to battered fish, there is simply no substitute for beer batter. The bubbly beverage helps to create a light and crispy coating that seals in moisture and flavor. And while you can use any beer in the batter, specific varietals will produce better results. For a lighter fish, such as flounder or sole, a Pilsner or other pale lager is a good choice. For heartier fish, such as cod or salmon, an amber ale or other dark beer will add more depth of flavor. When making beer batter, it is essential to let it rest for at least 30 minutes before using it. It will give the alcohol time to evaporate, which will help to prevent the batter from sticking to the pan. These simple tips make you quickly make a delicious beer-batter fish home.
