You won't believe how easy it is to make your own Gluten Free Beer Battered Fish at home. Add a side of hot fries and some creamy coleslaw, and you've got the perfect pub dinner.
Serves: 8
  • enough oil for deep frying, about 2" in your pot/fryer
  • 8 (4 ounce) cod or tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour (for dusting the fish fillets)
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free beer OR Club Soda
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  1. Heat oil in a heavy bottom pot or a deep fryer until 365 degrees F.
  2. Rinse the fish and pat it dry.
  3. Place 1/2 cup brown rice flour in one bowl. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the batter ingredients. The batter will be fairly thin, that's alright, it will work just fine.
  5. Working one at a time, dip the fish fillets into the rice flour, then into the batter, and then carefully place it in the hot oil. You shouldn't overcrowd your pot - only fry a few pieces of fish at time.
  6. Fry fish, turning once, until both sides are a golden brown (about 2 minutes per side). Drain on a paper towel lined baking sheet, and serve while still warm.
