GUINNESS® Good Food Guide

Crispy GUINNESS® Battered Cod Fillet


Serves 3

  • 3 fresh fillets of cod
  • For the batter:
  • ½ can of GUINNESS® Draught
  • 1 ½ cups of flour
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of baking powder
  • Teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper

One taste of this and you'll understand why customers at GUINNESS® STOREHOUSE® are hooked. GUINNESS® and fish were made for each other. And it doesn't get any better than fresh fish in this crispy beer batter.

Pour the GUINNESS® into a large bowl and add the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Then whisk until it is light and frothy. Let the batter sit for 15 minutes - remember good things come to those who wait! Meanwhile, heat a deep fryer to 180° C. When the batter is ready, dust the fish with flour and coat evenly with batter. Fry for 5 - 6 minutes turning once halfway. Then serve with chunky chips, salad and a cool GUINNESS®. Get your batter ready and then knock it up for the lads at half time.


To stop your batter sticking to the wire mesh of your deep fat fryer, simply take the mesh out and use a slotted spoon to lift your fish instead. Genius.
