Guinness Battered Cod and Onion Rings

Superbowl Sunday = greasy goodness

After being snowed in all weekend, I had a major itch to cook, and with limited ingredients. Found this awesome recipe and substituted Guinness - turned out to be some of the best onion rings i've ever had.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more for sprinkling on onion rings and fish
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Guinness Beer
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced into 1/2-in.-thick rings
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless cod fillets, rinsed and cut into 2- by 4-in. pieces


1. Whisk flour, baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, pepper, egg, and beer in a large bowl.

2. In a 6- to 8-qt. pot, heat 2 in. of oil to 375° over medium-high heat. Add onion to batter, turn to coat well, then put several onion rings in pot (do not crowd). Cook, turning often, until golden brown, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a rack set over a sheet pan, and sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining onions.

3. Allow oil to return to 375° and skim to remove any batter bits. Add fish to batter and turn to coat well. Cook fish in hot oil, turning and holding down as needed, until deep golden brown, about 7 minutes. Drain on rack and sprinkle with salt.

not the prettiest food, but SOO yummy!
