This is a fun, quick and easy meal to make. You can eat the fillets alone as fish and chips or sandwiched between burger buns. Add tangy tartar sauce, crisp lettuce leaves, and a tomato slice and you get the ultimate fish sandwich!
Prep time: 10 minutes
Start to finish: 15 minutes
1 pound fish fillets, thawed if frozen (I use cod)
1 cup + 3-4 Tbsp. original Bisquick mix, divided
1/2 cup regular beer or non-alcoholic beer or sparkling non-alcoholic apple cider
1/2 tsp. salt
Tartar sauce, if desired.
Heat oil (1 1/2 inches deep) in heavy 3-quart saucepan or deep fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lightly coat fish with 3 to 4 Tbsp. Bisquick mix.
Beat 1 cup Bisquick mix, beer, salt and egg with hand beater until smooth. (If batter is too thick, stir in additional beer, 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency). Consistency should be like cake batter.
Dip fish into batter, letting excess drip into bowl.
Fry fish in oil about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown; drain. Serve hot with tartar sauce.
