Fried fish always tastes nicer. Fried fish can be done in different ways. This is one way of doing fish in a batter. When I was an an apprentice I got more than hundred pieces of fish to fry on Fridays. I loved to fry fish. Only thing I didn’t like was to stand near the fryer.

There are different types of fish that you can use for frying. Flathead is the best out of all. One thing is really easy to cook. The other is the flavour. Once fried its really nice and crunchy.

I am using 500 g Flathead for this recipe. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice on to the fish and mix well to season.

Add plain flour on to the fish and coat with flour. In a separate bowl Add 1 cup of flour and a bottle of beer . Mix the flour and beer well.

I always season the batter with a bit of stock powder.Then the batter tastes better. meanwhile mix the flour with the fish well.

Put a pot of oil on the stove. Put the fish in the batter. When you take it out make sure to drain excess batter out. Fry the fish in oil turning until golden brown .

Hi, I am Menaka. I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called " Mary" who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management. My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel "The Culinary Corner" I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self. As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.
