Beer Battered Catfish

Before I get to the recipe, I wanted to point out the new link ,on my navigation bar, that says ‘Recipes’.  I added this today as a request by my own mother!  She wanted to be able to scroll through the recipe titles without having to hit the ‘previous posts’ link over and over again.  I plan to add the various food categories to that page to help you narrow down your search to whatever you’re looking for (example:desserts).  Don’t forget, when you click on any individual post, you have the option to print it.  I hope you find this useful and if you have a request or recommendation, please feel free to contact me.

Now on to the recipe!


  • 1 pound catfish fillets
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup beer
  • 3/4 cup oil


Wash fish, and pat dry.  Coat with flour; set aside.  Combine remaining four with lemon juice and beer, stirring until smooth.  Heat oil inlarge skillet over medum-high heat.  Meanwhile, dip fish in batter.  Fry fish until golden brown on both sides.  Serve with hushpuppies, coleslaw, and sweet tea!
