About this recipe:This is an exceptional recipe for beer battered fish. You can use cod as stated, but it also is wonderful to use with haddock, pollock, sea bass and orange roughy. The small amount of dill is optional, but really makes for a lovely flavour.
125g plain flour

Heat deep fryer to 190 C / Gas 5. Place fish in hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Cook fish in batches to avoid overcrowding and maintain oil temperature. Serve.
Alternatives to cod:
Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.
