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.

dabrewsvery true to from! it was awesome! I added some cayenne pepper and also tossed shrimp in half a cup of corn starch prior to dipping in batter to help it hold better! i am stuffed!4y ago
TampaTygrrThe basic recipe is good, but the results are a bit too thick: it really needs twice the amount of beer than originally stated. Also, since we aren't fans of Old Bay (or similar) we stuck with salt, garlic powder, and onion powder4y ago
rayneberryDon't use this batter thick or it will be too soggy...I also substituted beer for milk, and it turned out great!4y ago
