Directions

For the beer batter:

  1. Put the flour together with the beer, the egg yolks and some salt and pepper in a bowl and stir with the whisk to a smooth batter.
  2. Melt the butter and let it cool for a few minutes, beat the egg whites until stiff. In the meantime, let the batter swell.
  3. Now stir the butter into the batter, fold in the egg whites and set aside.
  4. Now heat the oil in a narrow, high saucepan to approx. 160 ° C.
  5. Heat your oven to 100c.
  6. Pat the fish dry and cut into large chunks.
  7. As soon as the oil is hot enough, dip your fish pieces into the beer batter to coat and taking great care and using a metal slotted spoon or spider add to the hot oil. Only cook 3 to 4 pieces of fish at a time.
  8. Fry for 6-8 mins, depending on the thickness of the fish, until golden and crisp.
  9. Remove carefully with slotted spoon or spider, drain on kitchen paper and then add to oven to keep warm.

For the cucumber salad:

  1. Wash, cut the cucumbers lengthways into fine strips using a peeler. Slice the radishes.
  2. Put both together in a bowl. Mix the crème fraîche with the vinegar, season with salt and pepper, add to the salad and mix thoroughly.

Serve the fried fish with French fries, cucumber and radish salad and lemon wedges
