Beer Battered Fish Nuggets

Tonight, I made beer battered fish nuggets, oven fries, and green beans. The family went crazy for it! I got this recipe for beer battered fish from Alton Brown.

1 1/2 pounds of firm-fleshed white fish cut into “nuggets”, but you can make them in to strips, or whole pieces if you want. I used cod, but you can use any white fish you like.

Beer Batter-
Whisk the following in a medium mixing bowl:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 dash Old Bay seasoning
Whisk together slowly with 1 cup of brown beer. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Heat some vegetable oil in a pan. While it is heating up, dredge your fish in some cornstarch and tap off any excess cornstarch. Dip in to the batter and put in oil. Don’t crowd the pan. When the batter is set on one side, turn the fish over and cook until golden brown and delicious. I served with green beans, home-style fries (frozen), and homemade tarter sauce. Tarter sauce= mayo +relish Yum!
