For everyone watching the Super Bowl tomorrow, you should find yourself in abundance of two things: food and beer. But what if you have a little too much beer for the big day? If you haven't thought to try it already, cooking with it is a practical and delicious idea.
Let's borrow a dish from across the pond. Fish and chips are a well-known dish from the United Kingdom that's casual enough to enjoy for any Super Bowl party. It consists of beer battered fish and a side of a fries. Cod and Haddock are the more traditional choices but fish such as Tilapia works as well.
Makes 1 1/2 cups
1 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup beer
Place flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the beer and stir with a whisk to incorporate. Let batter rest, covered with plastic, for at least 1/2 hour and up to 2 hours in the refrigerator before using.
When you're ready to cook the fish, heat the oil in your frying pan or deep fryer to 300 degrees F, dip your fish fillet in the batter, and fry until it's a nice golden brown. Once it's done, place the fish on a paper towl to let the oil drain.
