The other day, we bought Fish & Chips and some Fried Seafood from a local Fish & Chips shop. It cost us a lot and we were totally disappointed. The food was not worth the money we spent. Today I cooked this amount of Beer Battered Fried Seafood using Marinara Mix (Seafood Mix) that I bought from a fish shop, which cost less than half the cost we spent at the Fish & Chips shop. And you know it is easy to cook.


4 Servings


600g Seafood Mix *Prawns, Fish, Squid, Scallops, Mussels, etc.
2 to 3 tablespoons Rice Flour OR Plain Flour
Oil for frying

Beer Batter
3/4 cup Plain Flour
1/4 cup Rice Flour OR Potato Starch (OR Corn Starch)
1/4 teaspoon Fine Salt
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder *OR grated 1 clove Garlic
1 cup COLD Beer of your choice

  1. Heat deep Oil to 180℃. Sprinkle Rice Flour (OR Plain Flour) over Seafood pieces, and coat them well.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine Plain Flour, Rice Flour (OR Potato Starch, Corn Starch), Fine Salt and Garlic Powder. Add COLD Beer and mix well.
  3. Dip the Seafood pieces in the batter and fry in the oil until nicely browned and crispy. Seafood can be cooked fairly quickly. Take them out and lay them on a rack to drain the oil.
  4. Sprinkle with extra Salt and enjoy while hot.
  5. *Note: If you have leftover batter, do not waste it. Add some sliced Onion and Carrot to the batter, and fry large tablespoon sized clumps until golden.
