Introduction: Beer Battered Fish Fry With Lettuce and Cherry Tomato Salad

To be honest I have never cooked anything with beer. Infact I never imagined that we could ever cook using beer. I am so glad this contest made me experiment cooking with beer and i must say the output was very tasty and rewarding.

Step 1: Ingredients Required to Prepare the Beer Battered Fish

  • Frozen/ fresh Tilapia fillets - 2
  • Any light beer - 4 tbsp
  • Crushed pepper - 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 2 tsp
  • Garlic powder - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Lime juice - 1/2 tsp
  • Parsley - 1 tsp chopped fine and few leaves for garnish
  • Olive oil for frying the fish - 1 tbsp

Step 2: Preparing Beer Batter for Marinating the Fish

  • If using frozen Tilapias, thaw the fish as per instructions in the package and remove the plastic covering and give it a nice wash and dry it well with paper towels
  • In a small bowl + chilli powder + garlic powder + salt + crushed pepper + lime juice + beer to make a thick batter + chopped parsley - mix well and the marinate is ready
  • Apply the marinate on the fish generously and cover the fish and let it absorb all the spices for 30 minutes to 1 hour

Step 3: Shallow Frying the Fish

  • In a large non-stick pan add oil and spread it out well
  • Once the oil heats up, place the marinated fish and let it cook for 3-4 minutes each side\
  • Garnish with parsley and serve alongside simple salad
  • For the simple salad in a small bowl + lettuce + cherry tomato + onion + crushed pepper + ranch dressing - mix well and done
  • Hope you like it :)
