Gluten-free battered fish!

Fish was on special at the fish shop just before Christmas, and I decided that I was in desperate need of proper battered fish and chips. I consulted Stephanie Alexander and decided to adapt a beer batter recipe. So here you go:

Beer battered Fish

  • 125g gluten-free flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup gluten-free beer
  • 1 cup cold water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp grated lemon rind or ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped spring onions or chives

Whisk ingredients until smooth. Coat fish and place into a frypan with a shallow layer of oil. This crisps up really nicely – results are as below:

For gluten-free beer in NZ, try Scotts. In the US, try Bard’s. I’m sure there are other gluten-free beers around the world – do let me know if you know of any!
