Method:

Ingredients


  • 400g pollock, fillets, skinned and cut into bite-size chunks

  • sunflower or vegetable oil

  • lime wedges, to serve

For the batter

  • 200g plain flour

  • ½ tsp golden caster sugar

  • 330ml bottle full-bodied beer (any type)

For the dipping sauce

  • 6 tbsp good-quality mayonnaise

  • juice 1 lime

  • handful coriander leaves, chopped


Method


  1. First make the sauce by mixing all the ingredients together, then set aside. In a large bowl, make the batter by tipping the flour, sugar and some salt and pepper into a bowl, then gradually whisking in the beer until smooth.

  2. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or heat about 5cm of oil in a wok until a drop of batter sizzles and crisps up quickly. Dredge a few chunks of fish in the batter, then deep-fry for 3-4 mins until golden. Remove, using a slotted spoon, then drain on kitchen paper. Repeat until all the fish is used. Serve the fish with the sauce for dipping and lime wedges for squeezing over.
