Poor Man's Beer Batter Fish Recipe
- 1 cup beer, or as needed
- 1 (7 ounce) container shake and pour buttermilk pancake mix
- 2 pounds trout fillets
- ½ cup oil for frying
step 1: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
step 2: Pour beer into the pancake mix container in place of the water it calls for. Make the batter as thick or thin as you prefer. Close the lid, give it a few shakes, and boom it's done.
step 3: Dip fish into the batter using a pair of tongs, or if you want to dirty a dish, pour the batter in a bowl first. If you cut your fish into smaller pieces, you can toss them into the container, close the lid and shake it a couple of times, then carefully remove the coated pieces.
step 4: Remove the fish from the batter using tongs, and place into the hot oil. Fry the fish until golden brown on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
