Updated Mar 6, 2013

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup dark beer or water

Steps

  • 1
    In shallow dish, mix flour and seasoned salt. In medium bowl, beat eggs and beer with whisk. Place bread crumbs in large resealable food-storage plastic bag.
  • 2
    In electric skillet or deep fryer, heat about 2 inches oil to 350°F. Coat both sides of fish fillets with flour mixture, then dip in beer mixture, letting excess drip back into bowl. Place 1 or 2 pieces of fish at a time in plastic bag with bread crumbs; seal bag and shake to coat completely.
  • 3
    Fry fish in batches in hot oil about 4 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Serve the fish with tartar sauce, lemon wedges and your favorite sides.
  • tip 2
    Panko bread crumbs are larger and coarser than most dry bread crumbs and are the secret to getting a really crisp crust on fried foods. Progresso® lemon pepper panko bread crumbs provide a flavorful alternative to plain bread crumbs. If you use them in this recipe, omit the seasoned salt.
