A deliciously crispy and slightly sweet Beer Battered Cod made with my homemade Sriracha Tartar Sauce! The perfect anytime meal!

Beer Battered Cod with Sriracha Tartar Sauce

This particular recipe was inspired by a weekend vacation to Seattle. We went to a place that served great beer and great bar food, but the item that caught my attention was the fried fish. The cod was so tasty that I had to come home and give it a try — and as usual, with a little twist.

With a little trial and error, I was able to come up with a recipe I think is worthy of sharing. Today, I share my version of Beer Battered Cod with my homemade Sriracha Tartar Sauce.

It is important to try to get fresh cod from your local grocer or market because nothing beats the taste and flakiness of fresh fish. Aside from the delicious cod, the batter I use is quite different from the norm.

Making the Beer Battered Cod with Sriracha Tartar Sauce:

  • You want to begin by cutting your 2 lb cod filet into 6 pieces. Season each piece of cod evenly then lightly coat with flour.
  • Add the pancake mix, flour and nutmeg into a large bowl and whisk until blended. Crack an egg into the mixture, then pour half of the beer needed and whisk.
  • Slowly add the remaining beer to the mixture until the consistency is slightly thick but not as thick as your typical pancake mix.
  • Add your cooking oil into a frying pan and make sure the oil is hot before adding in your fish.
  • Dip your fish into the batter, making sure each piece is completely coated, then add to the hot oil.
  • Cook each piece of cod for 4 minutes on each side then remove from heat placing them on a paper towel and/or elevated cooling rack. 

There is a slight sweetness to the batter due to my combination of pancake mix, nutmeg and beer (I use a beer that has a distinctive hop taste like an IPA beer for this recipe). I told you it was a little different. 🙂
