This makes enough batter for 4 servings*

This recipe works great in conjunction with our fish tacos and mango salsa recipe


  1. Mix  together dry ingredients and then slowly mix in the freeze dried egg.
  2. Pour in beer slowly until the desired batter texture is reached.  The optimal consistency is pancake batter thickness.  You may use 6-12 oz. of beer
  3. Dip your meat, vegetable or frying ingredient into the batter.  This will work best if the ingredient is dry and the batter is sticking well to the food.
  4. Deep fry or pan fry until golden to dark brown batter is crispy but not burned 

Take it with you pre-mix directions:

  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients including the freeze dried egg powder and place in a jar or a mylar bag. Then store appropriately until used. 
  2. When ready to use, add 2 Tbsp of water and 6-12 oz of beer. It is recommended to start with 6 oz, mix up, or shake up and then add more beer to get the batter to desired consistency. 
  3. Dip meat, vegetable or whatever you are going to fry into the batter, and then cook until golden brown.
