  1. Serves 4:
  2. 6ozs cod fillets skinned
  3. For the batter:
  4. 85 g / 3ozs plain flour
  5. ½ tsp baking powder
  6. A pinch of salt
  7. ½ tsp of turmeric
  8. 1 egg yolk
  9. 2 tsp oil
  10. 100ml / 3 ½ fl oz of beer
  11. To serve:
  12. Lemon wedges, potato chips, tartar sauce


Make the batter: sift flour, baking powder, salt and turmeric into a bowl, make a well in the centre. Put in the egg yolk, oil and beer, mix into a smooth batter, cover and refrigerated for 30mins.

Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer 180. Dip the cod in the batter so it is well coated. Lower into hot oil with tongs and fry for about 6 7mins until golden brown.

Drain the cod on absorbent paper, sprinkle with salt, and serve with chips and tartar sauce.
