  • 500g firm flesh white fish
  • 1 ½ cups plain flour
  • 400ml pale ale 
  • Rice bran or vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup store bought mayonnaise 
  • 1 Tbsp malt vinegar 
  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

  1. Cut the fish into bite sized pieces. In a bowl, make the beer batter by sifting the flour into a bowl and seasoning with salt and pepper. Whisk the dry mixture while streaming in the pale ale, ensuring not to overmix. 
  2. Bring a pot half filled with oil or deep fryer filled to a suitable frying temperature. Dip each fish piece into the beer batter and coat well, then transfer into the oil and fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through/opaque. Drain on a rack or paper towel and season with salt. 
  3. To make the salt and vinegar mayonnaise, combine the mayonnaise, malt vinegar, ¼ tsp salt and parsley. Add more salt if desired/to taste, then serve alongside cooked fries and the beer battered fish bites.
