A delicious recipe and an all-time family favourite.


  • 110g gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 125ml gluten free beer or sparkling water
  • For the fish
  • 4 fish fillets
  • 1 tbsp gluten free flour
  • 2–3 litres sunflower oil for deep fat frying


Step 1

To prepare the batter, place the gluten free flour and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Stir together with a fork. Add the oil and gluten free beer or sparkling water to the bowl and mix with the fork to make a smooth runny batter. Set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes until frothy.

Step 2

When ready to cook the fish preheat a deep fat fryer or a pan of hot oil to 170°C.

Step 3

Dust fish fillets with the flour mixture and immerse one at a time into the batter. Remove with tongs and place carefully into the deep fat fryer/ pan. If using a deep fat fryer, do not use the basket as the batter sometimes sticks to the wire.

Step 4

Cook for 5–6 minutes until the batter is puffed and golden. Remove fish with a slotted spoon, let it drain then lay it on kitchen paper to absorb excess oil.

Step 5

Place battered fish in warm oven while the other fish are cooked.

Step 6

Serve with crispy chips and lemon.
