Beer Battered Fish & Homemade Corn Fritters

I'm just going to start off by saying that I will not divulge the type of fish I used here.  I'm ashamed of it.  It isn't Halibut and that's pretty much all you need to know.  It tasted OK, but I'm going to REALLY suggest that if you beer batter & deep fry fish, you either use #1: Halibut, #2: Cod, #3: Mahi Mahi

****Another tidbit....... Frying two different items for the same meal is a #1: A HUGE PIA, and #2: A Heartattack waiting to happen.  I don't recommend it.

With that said.....

Beer Battered Fish

Get yourself a 'Fish Batter Kit' and the cheapest beer you can find. (We used Keystone).  Follow the directions on the package for 'Beer Batter.'

Cut your white fish into chunks

Make the batter

Put the chunks of fish into the batter

Get your oil HOT

With a fork, get a piece of fish out of the batter and place gently into the oil.  Let fry about 3-4 minutes, flip, let fry another couple minutes (until browned) and then drain on paper towels.

Subtly sprinkle with Garlic Salt

Serve with Tartar or put in tacos.

Corn Fritters with Cinnamon Honey Butter

First, make up the butter:

1/4- 1/3 cup butter (room temperature)
about 2 tbsp honey
1/2 tbsp cinnamon

Mix & mash with fork.  Set aside.

Next, get about 3" of oil HOT in a pot.
You are going to need a 'scoop' and tongs.

To make the batter, add the following (in this order) to your mixer:

1 cup Cornmeal
1 1/2 Flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 C Sugar
1 tsp salt
1 C Milk
2 large eggs
1/4 C softened butter
1 can (15ish oz) whole kernel corn, drained

Using small to medium scoop, drop scoops of batter into hot oil.  Watch and flip using tongs when necessary.

Drain on paper towels.

This makes A LOT..... like 3-4 dozen fritters.  I took the 20+ leftover fritters and put them in the freezer. 

I will throw them in the oven at 350 for about 10-15 minutes when ready to consume. :)
