You’ll need:

  • Fresh fish fillets – we used flathead, but any good tasting fish will do!
  • 3/4 cup of self raising flour
  • 150 ml (or a bit more) of full-strength beer
  • Salt and pepper
  • A deep fryer (or hot oil in a pot)


All you do is mix the beer with the self raising flour to a creamy consistency. Add beer slowly is the tip here. You don’t want it too runny. No lumps. Add salt and pepper. Soak fish in batter. Cook in deep fryer for 4 or 5 minutes. Serve with chips and you will have the best fish and chips known to man!
