Poor Man's Beer Batter Fish

It's ready in nine minutes.


December 15, 2014

This is a super easy and fast not to mention inexpensive and no-mess way to make a beer batter for your fresh fish while camping. Using only beer, your freshly caught fish, some oil for your skillet, and shake-and-pour buttermilk pancake mix containers found in your local supermarket. Great for camping!


(Original recipe makes eight servings)

1 cup beer, or as needed

1 (7 ounce) container shake-and-pour buttermilk pancake mix


1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

2. Pour beer into the pancake mix container in place of the water it calls for. Make the batter as thick or thin as you prefer. Close the lid, give it a few shakes, and boom it's done.

3. Dip fish into the batter using a pair of tongs, or if you want to dirty a dish, pour the batter in a bowl first. If you cut your fish into smaller pieces, you can toss them into the container, close the lid and shake it a couple of times, then carefully remove the coated pieces.

4. Remove the fish from the batter using tongs, and place into the hot oil. Fry the fish until golden brown on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
