Great Recipes Series - Cajun Seasoned Beer Battered Fish

After several people asking for it, I decided to start a series of recipes that are healthy and tasty at the same time. Being healthy is not about having to eat nasty food at all, its about knowing what you are eating and eat it at the right time.

Lets get right into it:


  • 2 pounds fish fillets

  • 3 eggs (slightly beaten)

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1/2 cup beer

  • 3 tablespoons mustard

  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons salt (divided)

  • 2 teaspoons black pepper (divided)

  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (divided, or to taste)

  • 3 cups corn flour (fine yellow)

  • Vegetable oil (for frying)

Steps to Make It

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, beer, mustard, Tabasco, and half of the salt and peppers.

  2. Put the all-purpose flour in a plate or wide, shallow bowl.

  3. In another bowl, combine the remaining salt and black pepper with cayenne pepper, and the corn flour; stir to blend thoroughly.

  4. Cut fish fillets into bite-sized chunks or nuggets. Drop several chunks in the all-purpose flour and then put them in the egg mixture to coat.

  5. Drop the fish into the cornflour mixture, turning to coat thoroughly. 

  6. Place the coated fish on a rack to dry slightly.

  7. Preheat oil in deep fryer to about 370 F.

  8.  Working in small batches, fry the fish nuggets until they are golden brown and float to the surface, about 3 to 5 minutes. Take care not to overcook.

  9. With a slotted metal spoon, remove the fish nuggets to paper towels to drain. Pat them gently with paper towels to soak up any excess oil.
