Cooking with Guinness might seem like a strange thing to you, but it has actually been a part of Irish Cooking for a while. The deep flavors of Guinness complement well hearty dishes such as fish & chips or fish pies.
Guinness Battered Fish & Chips
A frothy pint of Guinness is a must on St. Patrick's Day (or any other day, if you ask us). But don't stop there! Save some stout for this savory recipe, too.
In large mixing bowl, add beer, baking soda, salt, pepper, and egg
With a whisk, slowly add enough flour until the batter is thick, not runny and adheres to a wooden spoon.
Heat oil in a deep fryer or in a deep-sided pan to 175 degrees Celsius
Cover fish in flour, shaking off excess and dip in batter, covering all sides of fish
Holding battered fish, gently dip into hot oil, holding halfway in, wait 15 seconds and drop into oil. This will prevent the fish from sticking to the bottom.
Flip fish over when brown on one side and cook altogether about 6-8 minutes, depending on the thickness of fillets. The fish should be all one color all the way through 140 degrees internal temperature.
Serve with tartar sauce and chips
