• 2 pounds of fish fillets
  • 1 pound fine yellow corn flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 quart cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco


Thoroughly mix eggs, milk, beer, mustard, Tabasco, and half of the salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Cut fish into bite sized pieces. Put fish in mixture and let soak (1 hr. in refrig. or longer the better). Mix corn flour with the remaining salt and pepper in a bowl. Preheat oil in deep pan to 375 degrees. Remove fish from mixture and coat with corn flour mixture. Fry fish until fish floats to the surface and turns golden brown, don’t over fry it. Place on paper towels to soak up oil.

You can use this batter to fry shrimp, oysters, crawfish and soft shell crabs.
