Gluten-free beer-battered fish fry batter produces crisp, light fried fish. It makes a delicious gluten-free batter for onion rings and shrimp too! If you don't like beer batter just substitute club soda for the beer.
Prep Time: 0 hour, 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
- Oil for Frying (Use an oil designed for high heat frying, preferably peanut or coconut oil)
- 2 pounds fresh fish fillets
- 1 cup all purpose gluten-free all purpose flour mix (I used Bob's Red Mill All Purpose GF Baking Mix)
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon GF baking powder
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon cayenne powder
- 1 teaspoon GF garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon GF onion powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 12 ounce bottle of gluten-free beer OR 12 ounces of club soda
- Combine cornstarch, gluten-free all purpose flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper, sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper in a large, plastic zip lock bag.
- Shake the bag to thoroughly mix the dry ingredients. Pour this mixture into a medium sized bowl.
- Add gluten-free beer or club soda and mix until the batter is smooth and not too thick or too thin. Add more liquid if the batter is too thick.
- Dip fish fillets in batter, making sure both sides are coated. Hold above the bowl to let excess batter drip off.
- Fry in hot oil until golden brown.
