Light Beer Batter

Light Beer Batter

Preparation Time:
Cook time:
Yield: ---


1 12 oz can Light Beer
1 1/2 cups Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Paprika
1 cup Flour, for dredging


Pour the beer into a large bowl. Sift the flour, salt, and paprika into the beer, whisking until the batter is light and frothy. The batter may be used immediately or stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, but be sure to whisk it occasionally.

Heat at least 2 inches of oil in a frying kettle or electric fryer. Just before it reaches 375F, quickly dredge the fish and shrimp with flour, shaking off excess then dip in the beer batter, coating well, and drop them into the hot fat (do this in 2 batches). When they are brown on one side - less than 1 minute - turn and brown them on the other side. Drain on paper towels.

Serve hot, with lemon wedges.
