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


  • 2 lb. Fresh Cod Fish
  • 1/2 cup Pancake Mix
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Large Organic Egg
  • 1 cup IPA Beer (of choice)
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp Creole Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper

For the Sriracha Tartar Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup Miracle Whip Mayo
  • 2 tsp Sriracha Sauce
  • 2 tsp Dill Relish
  • 1/4 tsp Creole Seasoning
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • Dash Garlic Powder
  • Dash Paprika
  • Dash Black Pepper


  1. Begin by cutting the the cod filet into 6 pieces. Season each side with Creole seasoning and black pepper. Set to side.
  2. Add pancake mix, flour, nutmeg and egg to a large bowl and slightly mix. Slowly add the beer into the mixture until the texture has a slightly thick consistency.
  3. Pre-heat cooking pan to medium heat and add cooking oil.
  4. Add 1 tbsp of flour on a plate and coat the cod pieces with the flour, shake the access. Add the cod to the batter mixture coating each side until covered. Add directly into cooking oil.
  5. Cook each piece of cod for 4 minutes on each side. Place on paper towel to soak up the excess oil or place on an elevated cooling rack.
  6. For the tartar sauce, add all ingredients into a small bowl and whisk (paid link) together until smooth.
  7. Serve hot.



Most pancake mix is simply a blend of flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar and I use it to add a little sweetness. Feel free to substitute this ingredient with regular all-purpose flour. For this recipe, that means using 1 cup (versus 1/2 cup) of all-purpose flour.
