How to Make the Best Fish Batter Recipe! In 5 Minutes.

Homemade Fish Batter in 5 Minutes

So you just spent the whole day fishing and catching a nice day’s haul. You’re back at home and you’ve cleaned the fish to perfection with little or no bones. Time to crack open a beer (because you need it for the recipe) and mix up some fish batter!

Here’s a 5 star fish batter recipe that you can whip up in 5 minutes with the ingredients you already have in the kitchen. For use if you want to batter and deep fat fry your fillets or nuggets.


1 cup plain flour

1 pinch of salt

2 teaspoons of melted butter

1 cup of soda water or beer


In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, and melted butter with a fork.

Next, add the soda water or beer and continue mixing with a fork. Don’t worry about the lumps of butter. They will disappear while frying and make the crispy batter bubbly.

Lightly coat your fish with flour and then dip into the batter before frying.

That’s it. You’re done. Finish the rest of that beer now!

I’ve used this recipe for walleye, chicken gizzards, chicken breasts cut up to make my own chicken nuggets, mushrooms, and onion rings. This could be used for deep fat frying any type of fish, meat, or even vegetables. You can add some ground pepper or chili powder to give it some extra kick if need be.

I add about a tablespoon of cracked black pepper myself to spice it up. Cayenne pepper or chili powder can also be used as desired. Keep the portions small.

  1. A very good recipe similar to what we use, well almost exactly what we use if we do not want a bit of picante bite in our fish or chicken. Sometimes to spice it up a bit we add a bit of black pepper and garlic powder to the dry ingredients. and if we have southerners who seem to like picante more than most folks, we add some ground cayenne pepper as well, but be careful a pinch goes a long way.

    • Thanks for reading Robert! I never thought of adding the cayenne pepper to it. I usually just add some cracked black pepper to spice it up. I’ve got to catch some more fish soon and try the cayenne pepper.
