Bwell Canola oil for frying
Pinch of salt and pepper
4 x 200g firm white fish
300g flour
1 Tbsp (15ml) baking powder
1 cup (250ml) ice-cold beer

Tartar sauce:

½ cup (125ml) mayonnaise
1-2 large gherkins, finely chopped
½ red onion, finely chopped
Handful of parsley, chopped
Small handful dill, finely chopped
Juice of ½ lemon


  1. Pour Bwell canola oil into a fryer or a deep heavy based pan.
  2. Season fish fillets with milled salt and ground pepper.
  3. Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl and fold through the cold beer to form a batter, a similar consistency to thickened cream.
  4. Lightly coat each fillet with flour, and dust off the excess flour.
  5. Coat each fillet with batter; drain the excess of batter off the fillets before deep-frying in hot canola oil. Depending on the temperature, the fish should take about 6-8 minutes aside to cook through and turn golden in colour.
  • Mix all your tartar ingredients together and serve with deep fried fish fillets and a couple lemon wedges on the side.
