“This is a SUPER EASY AND FAST not to mention CHEAP and NO MESS way to make a beer batter for your fresh fish while camping. Using only beer, your freshly caught fish, some oil for your skillet, and shake and pour buttermilk pancake mix containers found in your local supermarket. Great for camping!” - by PSYCHOSKITCHIN
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Pour beer into the pancake mix container in place of the water it calls for. Make the batter as thick or thin as you prefer. Close the lid, give it a few shakes, and boom it's done.
- Dip fish into the batter using a pair of tongs, or if you want to dirty a dish, pour the batter in a bowl first. If you cut your fish into smaller pieces, you can toss them into the container, close the lid and shake it a couple of times, then carefully remove the coated pieces.
- Remove the fish from the batter using tongs, and place into the hot oil. Fry the fish until golden brown on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

"This is good for veggies, peppers, eggplant, mushrooms, squash, fish, shrimp, chicken, onion rings, and dill pickle chunks. Similar to an old Bisquick recipe. First, before you fry anything, make su..." See morere your oil has a high smoke point (peanut or canola) so it doesn't burn too quickly. Second, heat your oil plenty hot, because if it is too cold, your food will be heavy and greasy. A bit of batter should float and sizzle in there at the right temperature without burning up. Third, wash and pat your food dry and dust it with some dry pancake mix before dredging it in the wet batter to make it stick well. Fourth, use the best beer you can afford and two tablespoons of a salty seasoning like cajun or Old Bay for flavor. Fifth, don't crowd your food, fry in multiple batches if necessary, and fry in hot oil until the food floats to the top and stays there."
"I have been using a similar recipe for years and it is great for making onion rings too! My recipe calls for a dash of hot sauce and a few sprinkles of Old Bay seasoning added to the container. Very..." See more good."
