Alaskan Beer Bits
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total: 15 minutes
- 1 wild-caught Rockfish fillet, cubed
- 3 cups olive oil
- 1 box of Krusteaz buttermilk pancake mix
- 1 bottle of beer of your liking
Begin by pouring all 3 cups of oil into your skillet. Heat over medium high heat.
While your oil heats up, cube your rockfish fillet.
Dump the contents of the Krusteaz box into a medium bowl. Slowly begin adding your beer and stirring until you get a nice batter (you don’t want your batter to be too thick, but you also don’t want a runny batter!)
Begin coating your rockfish pieces in batter before transferring them to the hot oil. Fry on each side for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve with tartar sauce, cocktail sauce, or whatever your favorite sauce is!
