Beer-Battered Cod With Tartar Sauce
Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
For the cod:
1 ½ cups Thrive Market Organic All-Purpose Flour
½ cup Thrive Market Organic Corn Starch
1 (12-ounce) can beer, like lager
1 large egg
1 teaspoon sea salt, plus more for coating fish
6 cups canola oil, for frying
4 fillets Thrive Market Wild-Caught Cod
Thrive Market Organic Ground Pepper
Lemon wedges, for serving
Make the tartar sauce by stirring together all ingredients. Season to taste with salt, then refrigerate until ready to serve.
Make the cod:
Whisk flour, cornstarch, beer, egg, and salt in a large bowl, until no lumps remain. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes, and up to 3 hours.
Add oil to a large Dutch oven and warm over medium heat until temperature reaches 375°F.
When the oil is ready, pat fish dry on both sides with a paper towel, then season with pinches of salt and pepper on both sides; place fish into the bowl of batter. Remove fish with a pair of tongs and allow excess batter to drip back into the bowl. Lower fish into the oil, holding on for a few seconds to prevent it from sticking to the bottom. Repeat with remaining fillets, and adjust heat as needed, to keep the temperature 350°F. Cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Serve with tartar sauce.
