Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

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.

Air Fryer Bone-in Ribeye Steak

I love Air Fryer Bone-in Ribeye Steak. To be honest, I have no idea how did I ever live this long without an air-fryer.

It is the best invention, and I am in love with it ever since we got it. We made so many amazing and delicious things in it, and now we tackled steak.

We were quite impressed with how tender the steak was and flavorful as well. It is rather hard to make a steak taste as good as when you make it on the grill, but it was fantastic.

Of course, ultimately the final result would depend on the steak and the brand of air fryer as well.

Air Fryer Bone-in Ribeye Steak

My air fryer is not the best of the best, but still, after testing several times, my steaks were coming out phenomenally.

I would totally recommend you to try it. You could marinate it overnight in the fridge, however, I wanted just to use simple salt, pepper, herbs, and butter.

If you like using your steak seasoning, go ahead and use it, but you could just literally use salt and pepper. Butter is kind of mandatory so you must add some tasty butter.

My husband was not a big fan of steaks, but now he is so I did something right. I made this for our lunch while kids were still in school and he wanted to eat half of mine.

I do not share my steak so no, he did not get to have my reminding half. Haha… Jokes on the side, you guys must try it.

Air Fryer Bone-in Ribeye Steak

When you are looking for a good steak I ould recommend or suggest ribeye, which is fattier and more evenly marbled than sirloin. Also, it has a mellower flavor.

It is more expensive than sirloin, which is less fatty, and lightly tougher. However, it tends to be sort of beefier in flavor, but it is cheaper

Recipe
Yield: Serves 1

Air Fryer Bone-in Ribeye Steak

Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Total Time: 14 minutes

Easy and tasty steak recipe made in the air fryer

Ingredients

  • 2-3 tablespoons butter softened
  • 2 teaspoon freshly chopped parsley (dried works well too)
  • 1 teaspoon chives
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 (1.5-2 lb.) bone-in ribeye, preferably 1.5 inches in thickness
  • Generous pinch of Kosher salt on both sides
  • Freshly ground black pepper for both sides

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine butter and herbs. Cover and refrigerate until hardened, about 15 minutes. You could make it prettier and roll in wax paper or plastic wrap to make a log.
  2. Season steak on both sides with salt and pepper. 
  3. Place steak in the air fryer basket and cook at 375° for 12 to 16 minutes, depending on the thickness of the steak and how rare or done you wish you steak to be, flipping halfway through. I prefer medium-rare, so I flip mine at 7 minutes and do another 7 minutes on the other side. My husband likes very well done, so I flip his at 8 to even 9 minute- point, depending on the thickness.
  4. Top steak with a slice or two of herb butter to serve. Serve with vegetables or salad.

Notes

Steak internal temperature guide:
125°-130° F for Rare
130°-140° F for Medium-Rare
140°-150° F for Medium
150°-155° F for Medium-Well
160°+ F for Well-Done
Depending on your air fryer model and size of the steaks, the results might vary.

Beef Yakisoba

Beef Yakisoba

Simple and easy recipe for delicious Beef Yakisoba

I am on the beef kick again because I terribly craving Beef Yakisoba.

To tell you the truth, I cannot eat much beef, it makes my stomach feel funny, but I try to limit and I eat less than portion size suggests.

So 12 Oz a week is plenty for me, and there is once a week chicken, seafood and, of course, we have at least once a week completely meatless day.

I think it just depends on a month or a season. Sometimes my body doesn’t accept greens and sometimes red meat.

Anyhow, when I say “WE” I mean that my family will only get salads, soups, hearty meatless stews, etc. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Tap here for more tasty Asian inspired meals.

Now, let’s talk about this delicious yakisoba.

You have NO freaking idea how much I love this. It is one of my absolute favorite dishes, but who am I kidding “noodles” and I go so well together.

Simple and easy recipe for delicious Beef Yakisoba

It is my guilty pleasure and I would even take it over anything fried, that’s how much I love it.

If I allow myself, I would literally eat yakisoba every single day and I don’t care if it’s with beef, pork, seafood, chicken or meatless.

And guess what, a couple of days ago I realized that my Hubster agrees with me too, and he rarely agrees with me HA! Just sayin’ :/

If you have never made it at home, now it’s the time to take that wok/pan out and whip this up because it’s so simple and easy that you will need literally 20 minutes to finish it.

Much cheaper if you make it at home. Additionally, you know what you are putting in as well.

You can make it lighter and use whatever meat/veggies you actually like. It has that sweetness and balance…mmm.

Simple and easy recipe for delicious Beef Yakisoba

Well, I just have to stop writing because I will have to make it right away. I made it with what I had available in my fridge without making a trip.

I pretty well stocked up pantry so noodles and many other ingredients are almost always available.

Beef Yakisoba -Japanese Fried Noodles with Beef
Yield: Serves 2

Beef Yakisoba -Japanese Fried Noodles with Beef

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

A simple, easy and extremely delicious recipe for Beef Yakisoba. 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon Oil
  • 3 OZ Lean beef fillet-per person cut into bite-size strips
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger minced
  • 1/4 onion sliced
  • 2 cups Asian Blend Fresh Veggies -read notes
  • 1/2 Red Pepper or any available
  • 2 Scallions, chopped
  • 1 pack Yakisoba Noodles or Chinese egg noodles, cook and drain
  • 5-6 tablespoons Yakisoba Sauce * or to taste or seasoning that comes with yakisoba
  • Splash of water
  • Sesame seeds Red Hot Chili and Sesame Oil/sprinkle and drizzle on the end

Instructions

  1. Heat the wok/frying pan and add oil. Add thinly cut bite-size strips of beef in the pan. Cook for few minutes and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Take it out of the work and on the plate until ready to be used. WOK on AMAZON 
  2. Add remaining tablespoon of oil and drop in chopped veggies. Stir-fry at the medium-high temperature, don’t let it burn. Season it with a pinch of salt and pepper. Continue stirring until veggies are halfway done, then add meat, stir again until well combined!
  3. Add cooked and well-drained noodles, stir with beef and vegetables for a few minutes.
  4. Add Yakisoba sauce or seasoning until you reach your desired taste, Add just a splash of water like few tbs. Stir it very well again for a few minutes or until noodles are well coded with the sauce and other ingredients.
  5. Serve immediately -leftovers could be placed in the airtight container and kept in the fridge for up to 3 days. Preheat and eat again!

Notes

Asian Blend -Chopped Veggie Bag contains Green Cabbage, carrots, red cabbage, broccoli shreds, pea pods, and kale.

You can get many other blends so pick what you like. This was my shortcut so I could save time, but you can get whatever veggies that you like and cut them yourself! But these pre-cut ones are pretty inexpensive and come in many variations.

You may use any meat/poultry/seafood or keep it meatless. It’s up to your preferences! I used Black sesame seeds for extra crunch -it’s optional!

I cook meat and veggies separately, you can most certainly cook it together. I add garlic to flavor the oil first, the addition of ginger on a lower temp until oil gets infused (10-15 Sec) then I finally add onion and the rest of the vegetables.

However, If you are going to cut vegetables yourself, the carrot needs more time to cook so if it’s chunky cut, add carrots to cook first. You can replace MEAT w/ TOFU!
