Tilapia in Beer Batter

Firkin Around...the kitchen.

Serves/Makes: 4 - 6


  • 4-6 Tilapia fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Oil for deep frying

    Beer Batter 
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup beer (golden colored, not dark)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder

How to cook Tilapia in Beer Batter:
  • Cut fillets into 2 inches pieces.
  • Put fish in a bowl with lemon juice, parsley, 2 tablespoons cooking oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat oil for deep frying. (Note: if cooking in batches, give the oil a chance to heat up before continuing)
  • Dip pieces of fish individually into batter, and then into hot oil.
  • Cook, turning and submerging pieces in the oil until golden brown all over.
  • Drain on paper towels.

If you're not a fan of Tilapia, substitute with another fish of your choice, such as Cod or Haddock.  Pair it with a refreshing Pilsener, serve it up with some pomme frites, and you've got yourself a great meal.

Firkin deep-fried and good!
