How To Make Irish Beer-Battered Fish and Chips
In a mixing bowl, prepare batter by stirring together the rice flour, 2 cups of the all-purpose flour, paprika, and beer. Whisk until smooth.
Cover and chill the batter for at least 2 hours, better if overnight.
When ready, preheat frying oil in a deep skillet.
Prepare a dredging station by placing the remaining flour into a bowl.
Season the flour with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.
Dredge the fish fillets in seasoned flour, pat until all excess flour has fallen off.
Dip them into the prepared batter. Allow the excess batter to drain off and then place the fish into the hot oil.
Deep fry for about 4 to 5 minutes, turning once after 3 minutes.
After both sides are golden brown and crispy, remove and allow to drain on paper towels.
Serve immediately with potato fries and any dipping sauce of your choice.
