Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish is easy, simple, and satisfies all the craving for fish and chips.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

 

You could defiantly make thicker French fries or steak fries, which reminds me the most of the British chips. My kids are mad about these air-fryer potatoes. These potatoes look as they should, rusting and homemade. You cannot even compare homemade to store-bought french fries.

 

Anyways, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make this fantastic classic dish, just a bit of patience, a few tools, great ingredients, and tasty fish.

 

My family loves and enjoyed fish recipes, so I was surprised to see leftovers, but I was so happy to have several pieces.

 

My youngest one and I had a fantastic brunch the next day. We make tasty sandwiches, which was extremely satisfying.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

An easy and simple recipe for Fish & Chips.

Ingredients

  • 6-8 thick cod fillets
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 egg whites, whipped
  • 1.5 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder (for the color)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 170ml dark beer (6oz)
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil for deep fryer
  • Lemon wedges and tartar sauce

Instructions

  1. Prep fish first. If the fillets are long and seem larger then slice into smaller fillets. Lay the fish fillets on a couple of kitchen towel sheets and pat dry very well. Season fish fillets with sea salt. Just a good pinch for each fillet.
  2. Add cornstarch to the plate and dip each filet on both sites into cornstarch, shake off any excess. Set aside.
  3. At this point turn the oil to heat. It should be at the oil temperature is still 350 degrees.
  4. Mix 2 egg whites with your electric mixer until you see peaks; set aside.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, a good pinch of salt, turmeric. Mix it well to combine dry ingredients.
  6. Add beer to the flour mixture and continue mixing until you have a thick, smooth batter.
  7. Fold egg whites into the batter. Beaten egg whites give this batter its leavening strength as well as its structural quality. It forms fluffy, tender pouches around the fish.
  8. Carefully, drop each fillet into the hot oil. Fry for approximately 10 minutes, or until the batter is crisp and golden, turning the fillets from time to time with a large slotted spoon.
  9. Once cooked, remove the fillets from the hot oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  10. Transfer fish to a large baking pan, then place it into 350 degrees preheated oven. This will finish the fish and keep the beer batter crispy. This is also how you will reheat your fish. 350F for 10 to 15 minutes.
  11. Once ready, sprinkle fish of sea salt and serve with lemon slices and tartar sauce.


For the Chips:

2 pounds of potatoes

1 quart/1 liter vegetable oil (or use air fryer)

POTATOES

AIR FRIER METHOD:

  1. Cut the potatoes a bit thicker. they should look more like steak fries.
  2. Place the chips into a colander and rinse under cold running water.
  3. Pat dry potato slices and add to the air fryer basket.
  4. Cook at the pre-setting or like me at 375F for 17-20 minutes depending on potatoes, as well as air-fryer.

*You can fry them your skillet, in batches with 1/2 cup of oil, or deep fryer with 30+ oz of oil or like me, you could use your air-fryer. Note that it is not the same as deep frying but it does the job if you wish to avoid fried potatoes.

Notes

Your Questions:

Can I air fryer for the last step instead of my oven?

YES! You can certainly use your air fryer.

I don't use beer, what else I could use as a substitute?

You may use nonalcoholic beer or seltzer water.

Well, to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of chicken thighs. Some people are white meat lovers and some dark, I am definitely a white meat lover.

Yes, sometimes I like it but they need to be super crunchy and delicious just like wings.

In this case, chicken tights are marinade in honey and mustard, with all the spices and herbs then cooked in the air-fryer.

However, if you do not have it, you can use honey mustard dressing.

I used it before when I was out of honey and it was still delicious.

It is cooked to perfection, plus it tastes pretty amazing too. I would totally recommend tho recipe even if you do not like dark meat like me.

It’s also inexpensive meat and you can feed your big or small family with a family-size pack. Serve it with salad, over rice, or pasta. You can even peel the skin after cooking and shred the chicken.

Maybe to think about if you have leftover. It can be a totally different dish using your leftovers, right?!

Anyhow, my family really liked it and I will commute making it just because it is such an easy, inexpensive and delicious recipe.

Air-Fryer Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Additional Waiting Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 55 minutes

Recipe for Air-Fryer Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs is flavorful easy and makes an amazing companion to so many side dishes.

Ingredients

  • 8 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs, 2 per serving
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl combine honey, dijon mustard, onion powder, salt, lemon pepper, lemon juice, and oil. Add the chicken thighs to the bowl and coat it with the mixture. Cover and leave it in the fridge for about 30 minutes to up to one hour.
  2. After it marinates place it in the air-fryer basket and cook between 40 and 45 minutes depending on the air-fryer. You can cook it longer if you want your chicken skin to be crispier with a deeper color. I would not extend cooking to more than 50 minutes. I like turning or flipping the chicken every 15 minutes on the other side so it can reach the rich golden color on all sides. If you are cooking less chicken you do don't have to flip it but if you have more in the air-fryerI am highly recommending it.
  3. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

I like air-frying lemon slices and serve it with the chicken.

It's fantastic with some potatoes or rice, with a bit of green on the side.

If you do not have lemon pepper, you can use lemon zest from one whole lemon and 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AIR FRYER: You can bake it at 375F for 40-45 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165F

Also, you may use your convection oven. Air Fryer is basically a convenient "countertop" convection oven.

Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Banana Nut Oat Muffins are easy and tasty breakfast or brunch idea.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Instructions

  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix then add rolled oats and chopped or crushed walnuts.
  3. Mash bananas with a fork in a small bowl so they still have a bit of texture
  4. Add sugar, melted butter, oil, beaten eggs, and vanilla. Mix well scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice. You can use an electric mixer but it is not neccecery.
  5. Mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated, together with oats and nuts.
  6. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins to fill them about halfway. Give them a rap on the counter to get any air bubbles out.
  7. Bake, until a toothpick stuck in the center of muffins, comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before turning the muffins out.
  8. You can keep them in the fridge after they are completely cooled down. Make sure muffins are in the ziplock bag or container with a lid. Wam them up before serving.

Notes

You can add dried fruit or chocolate chips which is amazing in these muffins.

If you do not have oats that ios completely fine. You do not have to panic because they are great without it as well.

If you do not have walnuts you can use any other nut, roasted and unsalted; pecans, almonds, peanuts, etc. It just a great to have extra crunch.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

A year later we got another one. It is bigger with more settings such as baking, toasting and broiling together along with the initial air fryer function.

Now, this is not an air fryer review of any kind, but I really like this one in regards to how many functions it has.

However, I wouldn’t get this one again just because it is a bit too loud compared to my old one.

I’ve been wanting to make a whole chicken for a while now and since this air fryer is big enough, the chicken, that is around 4 pounds, fits easily.

So after marinating the chicken overnight in the fridge I finally had a chance to make it.

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

It took me around an hour and a half, turning two times around to get that crispy skin. It was worth it.

To be honest, I thought that it will be done much faster but at the same time, I didn’t want to risk cooking it at high temperatures.

It was low and slow, in a way, although for the first 30 minutes I air-fried it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then a for an hour it was cooked at 375 degrees.

This all depends on how big your chicken is. Make sure that the internal temperature is at least 165 degrees.

You must poke your meat thermometer at the thickest part of the chicken so it can read the most accurate temperature.

Recipe
Yield: Makes 1 Chicken, Serves 4 to 6

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Additional Time to Marinade: 12 hours
Total Time: 13 hours 35 minutes

Air Fryer Whole Chicken is so easy, and everyone loves it. My favorite kitchen toy is an air fryer by far. As soon as we got it I was in love with it.

Ingredients

  • 1 chicken, 3 lb to 5 lb (1.3kg to 2.2kg)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Place the whole chicken in the large pot or a bowl (You can also use an extra-large ziplock bag to marinate). Remove the chicken giblets. Rinse the chicken inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pin feathers and pat the outside dry.
  2. On the side mix olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, salt, and pepper then rub all over the chicken. under the skin, inside and all around. Close it or cover it and place it in the fridge for 10 to 12 hours, or overnight.
  3. You can roast this in the oven for 45 to 50 minutes at 375°F, but today we gonna use air-fryer.
  4. Take the chicken out of the marinade and add butter under the skin and rub if possible all around the chicken.
  5. Air fry for 30 minutes at 350°F with back down and breast up, then turn it around and cook for 30 minutes with the breast down so the back could get a nice golden color as well at 375°F.
  6. After that turn, it again allows it to air-fry for an additional 30 minutes also at 375°F. If your chicken is bigger like 5 pounds it might take up to 40 additional minutes.

The cooking time depends a) on your air fryer and b) on the size of the chicken. Always use a meat thermometer to detriment if the chicken is cooked through. The safe internal temperature for cooked chicken is 165° Fahrenheit (75° Celsius). When you're cooking a whole bird, it should be inserted into the thickest part of the thigh but not touching bone.
