Beer Batter Fish Tacos (Low Carb Food, High Priced Gems)

I made a beer batter fish recipe some months ago that turned out great, but I did it with low-carb pancake mix. Some dieters don’t care for anything with wheat flour, so I may have found a new, wheat-less way. Ah, but we need fish. Let’s see if we can catch some! See below for the recipe and music credit.

Beer Battered Fish for Tacos

The recipe was inspired by this:


1 lb. fresh largemouth bass, cod, or other white fish fillets
1 cup almond flour
4 tsp. baking powder
¼ to ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper (or to taste)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
⅔ cup Beer, or your choice
salt and pepper
canola or peanut oil for deep frying

Cut fish into 1inch wide strips and season with salt and pepper.

Mix the dry ingredients together with a whisk. Beat the eggs and add it along with the beer to the dry ingredients. Whisk well.

In a heavy bottom pot or dutch oven pour about 2″ to 3″ of peanut or canola oil and place on high heat. (Or use a deep fryer in accordance with it’s directions). Allow to come to temperature of 365° (F). You can tell the oil is hot enough when you place the handle of a wooden spoon into the oil and small bubbles appear immediately around it.

Dip the fish into the batter and allow excess to drip off. Carefully slide into the hot oil. Only cook a few at a time so the oil’s temperature does not drop. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes depending on size, turning in oil with a slotted spoon, or until golden brown. Remove to paper towel lined plate. Repeat until all of the fish is done and dispose of any unused batter.

The scene from the movie “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” is in the public domain. Trailers for movies released before 1964 are in the Public Domain because they were never separately copyrighted. The law at the time granted the owner 28 years to file a copyright registration. Clearly, time has run out to register this material. Some might argue that since the trailers frequently contain the same material that’s in the movie, and the movie is presumably copyrighted, that this would cover the trailer as well. However, the trailer is published (run in a theater) before the movie itself is published. Thus, the trailer requires a separate copyright, and the scenes contained in the trailer are in Public Domain.
