  • 1 cup canola oil for deep-frying
  • cups crushed/ground cornflakes divided
  • ¼ cup potato starch
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup gluten-free beer
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound white fish fillets cod, haddock, or hake cut into 1x3-inch pieces
  • Cooked potato wedges for serving
  • Fresh herbs for serving


  • Pour the oil into a deep-fryer or a large frying pan and heat it to 350°F over medium-high.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup crushed cornflakes, the potato starch, and eggs. Gradually pour the beer into the bowl, stirring with a wooden spoon until you have a smooth, lump-free batter. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the remaining ½ cup crushed cornflakes into a dish.
  • Rinse the fish and pat it dry. Dip each fish fillet into the batter, then sprinkle with some of the remaining ½ cup crushed cornflakes.
  • Fry the fish, turning occasionally, until golden brown and crisp, about 7 minutes. Remove, using a slotted spoon, and place on paper towels to drain the excess oil. Repeat until all the fish is cooked.
  • Serve with potato wedges and finely chopped herbs, if desired.

      Sure! You might need to adjust the cooking time. Check it with an instant-read thermometer to ensure it’s cooked through.
