Thanks to Costco, I always seem to have salmon or tilapia in my freezer. I probably make fish once a week, which means I’m always looking for new recipes for either types of fish. Last week, I was searching for tilapia recipes on the computer and came across this amazing recipe from The Rookie Chef. It fits my criteria for a perfect recipe: easy, fast, and the results were outstanding. Here’s the recipe:
  • Tilapia filets
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of beer (I used Molson 67, of course)
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.

step 1

  • In another bowl blend the egg and beer together

step 2

then quickly stir into the flour mixture.

  • Don’t worry if the batter is a little lumpy (seriously…it’s lumpy)

Lumpy Batter (but it’s all good)

  • Heat oil (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in a skillet) in a frying pan until extremely hot
  • Now lightly dust your tilapia filets and dunk into your beer batter mix
  • Fry until golden and crisp, then drain on paper towels

The fish was moist moist moist and no one had any fish left on their plates after the meal. Definitely a good sign!!


PS. Costco had haddock on sale this week. Anyone have a good recipe to share?
