Total time
Recipe type: Western
Cuisine: Main
Serves: 40mins
  • 2 pcs fish fillets (you can use either dory or cod fillets, apply some salt and sugar onto it to firm up the flesh before use)
  • some frozen french fries (or you can deep fried your own from sliced potatoes)
  • some cooking oil, for deep frying
  • 2 slices of lemon
  • 4 tbsp flour, for coating

For the Root Beer Batter:
  • 45g flour
  • 60g cold Root Beer
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp potato starch flour
  • some salt & pepper to taste
  1. Combine all the ingredients for the root beer batter and mix till a smooth flowing batter is formed.
  2. Coat the fish fillets with the flour evenly and lower the fish entirely into the root beer batter. (This is to allow the batter to stick to the flour during deep frying, and not slip away.)
  3. Heat up some cooking oil for deep frying. When the oil is hot enough, dip the battered fish fillets into the hot oil and deep fried till golden brown, turn once or twice to ensure evenly brown.
  4. Deep fried the french fries and serve alongside with the fish, together with some salads/vegetables, tartar/chili mayonnaise sauce and lemon slices.
