Deep Fried Fish

Golden brown and crispy, you can never go wrong with some deep fried fish


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup beer or water
  • 1 1/2 cups crispy bread crumbs
  • Peanut or corn oil for frying
  • 1 ½ pounds fish fillets (walleye or cod)


In a shallow dish, mix flour and seasoned salt. In medium bowl, beat eggs and beer with whisk. Place bread crumbs in large resealable food-storage plastic bag.

In a deep fryer, heat about 2 inches of oil to 350 degrees. Coat both sides of fish fillets with flour mixture then dip in beer mixture, letting excess drip back into bowl. Place 1 or 2 pieces of fish at a time in plastic bag with bread crumbs; seal bag and shake to coat completely.

Fry fish in batches in hot oil for about 4 minutes, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
