Although the original recipe calls for the use of Lager in the making of the batter, you still can have restaurant-style Fish & Chips without the alcohol content. As requested, here is how you can make this delicious treat without the use of alcoholic beer.
To begin with, and to ensure the best outcome, always start with the best ingredients. When the fish is fresh, it tastes totally different from frozen. The fresher the fish the better the outcome. Check my post on selecting fish and seafood, for tips on how to pick the freshest fish. Go for Cod, Plaice, Turbot or Haddock fillets for this dish.
The batter is an important ingredient, as it protects your fish fillets from the heat, keeping them moist and succulent. A good batter makes all the difference here, as it makes for the overall experience here.
