Carey's Beer Batter For Fish, Shrimp & Onion Rings Preparation
1 Mix flour, salt, baking powder, old bay, garlic, and onion powder ( all dry Ingredients) in a bowl using a fork.
2 Beat beer, egg and oil together in a separate bowl.
3 Stir into flour mixture until well blended.
4 Batter should be pretty smooth and moderately thick.
5 Dip fish, shrimp, or onion slices in coating and deep-fry in hot oil that has been heated to 350 degrees, until it becomes golden.
6 Drain, and serve while hot and crispy.
7 This recipe also works well with chicken tenders and vegetable pieces; whatever you like to coat with beer batter.
** If you are doing onion rings, try soaking the sliced onion rings in either cold water for several hours or even buttermilk, prior to coating and frying.**
Great for a fish fry. Mushrooms and other veggies go great too, as well as chicky tenders, and squares of marinated tofu. Experiment and have fun! Makes enough for 1 pound of seafood.
