Beer Battered Fish and Onion Rings

A few months ago, we invited some friends over and bought 3 sets of 6 pack beer to share. That’s 18 cans.

Now, without wanting to sound like an elementary school mathematical problem, we finished 14 cans amongst ourselves. There were 4 untouched cans of beer.

Fast forward three months later, there are still 4 cans of beer sitting in the fridge.

The husband wouldn’t touch them because he doesn’t like drinking alone.

And i have been alcohol free for the past two plus years after getting pregnant and currently breastfeeding my toddler.

These beer cans kinda annoy me. They were squatters which i would love to see disappear because they were just taking up precious space in my fridge. And you can say i am pretty possessive when it comes to fridge space because between HUGE watermelons, papaya and cantaloupes, i always find myself running out of refrigerator room.

So in came Aspiring Baker #38 – Boozy-licious. This month, it is hosted by Jasline of the foodie baker and the theme this month is to cook or bake with alcohol (beer included)

Gleefully, i pulled open the tab of a beer can, knowing as i did so, i will be freeing 330ml (yes that’s the volume of a can of beer) of space. This beer is going into the batter for my fish and chips tonight.

Since there were only two of us eating, i only had a few slices of fish prepped. This means i had a whole LOTTA batter leftover. And no, i wasn’t going to refrigerate this batter for later use because as i stressed on earlier, i really really like my fridge space.

A brilliant idea came to mind. I chopped up some onions, used up the remaining of the batter

So that was our meal. It’s more fried stuff than i would have ever approved. So i made a lil’ salad bed.

And of course not forgetting a lil mayo and some ketchup.

    Hi Lina,
    Your beer battered fish and onions looks so inviting.
    Love the crispy battered layer and the moist fish.
    It is so good to have this with a little salad bed.
