Fish Sandwich Recipe

This fresh fish sandwich recipe is beer battered and fried to golden brown and served on a toasted bun with shredded cabbage and a homemade tartar sauce.

Once you try this sandwich, there’s no returning to the fast food or restaurant version ever again.


– neutral-flavored oil  – fresh cod fillets – all-purpose flour – cornstarch – baking powder – granulated garlic

Add the oil to a 4- or 5-quart pot and heat it until it reaches 350°. In the meantime, pat the cod dry on both sides with paper towels and set them on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper.

Gently season the fish on all sides with coarse salt. In a bowl whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, granulated garlic, granulated onion, paprika, cayenne, salt, and pepper.

Take 2/3 cup of the mixture and sprinkle it on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. 

Dredge the fish in the seasoned flour on the sheet tray until coated on all sides, and then set them to the side on the tray. They can sit like this for up to 10 minutes.

While it is sitting in the flour you can make the tartar sauce and shred the cabbage. Set them to the side. Next, whisk the beer into the bowl of seasoned flour until it is thoroughly combined.
