I’ve never made beer battered fried fish before but thought I would give it a go for everyone who is missing fish and chips as a little treat now they are gluten/and or dairy free. I had a bottle of gluten free beer in the cupboard but don’t worry if you don’t have any you can make this recipe using water instead.




For the batter:

  • 100g gluten free self-raising flour
  • 100g cornflour or potato flour
  • 300ml gluten free beer
  • salt and pepper for seasoning

For the fish:

  • 4 x 150g cod or haddock fillets
  • 2 tablespoons gluten free plain flour


  1. To make the batter whisk together the beer and flours
  2. Season with salt and pepper
  3. Heat either a deep fryer or pot of oil to 180 oC
  4. Pat the fish fillets dry with kitchen towel and then dust in the flour
  5. Dip the fish in the better then straight in the hot oil
  6. Cook for 4 minutes on each side until the fish is crisp and golden in colour
  7. Serve with chips and mushy peas for the true chip shop experience
