Altstadt Lager Fried Fish


  • 1 Filet of Cod cut into roughly equal size pieces. (about 1″x1″x3″)
  • Vegetable oil


  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • salt to taste (~1 tsp fine salt)


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine salt
  • ~8oz Altstadt Lager (less for a thicker batter, more for thinner. (Ours is just enough to coat the back of a spoon)


  1. Make batter by combining all ingredients and whisking. Keep cool until use
  2. Once fish is cut to your liking, dry fish throughly with paper towel.
  3. Roll fish in dredge and shake off excess (just want a light coating) and rest fish on a rack or crinkled aluminum foil
  4. Heat oil to 375°F
  5. Dip fish in batter and place directly in hot oil
  6. Cook fish for 4-5 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Remove from oil and place on rack. Salt and pepper immediately. Let sit for about one minute to let any excess oil drain and batter to crisp up.
  8. Serve while piping hot, atop a generous portion of fries, alongside your favorite Altstadt beer!
