Popcorn Fish

I knew it. I knew that Popcorn Fish would be a success with the family and when we ate it on Tuesday night, the Children's and Daddy's second helpings confirmed it. As it was so successful I thought I'd add it to my growing collection of fish recipes, here on the blog.

Home Made Popcorn Fish


2 Fillets of Fish. (We had Saithe)
2 tbsp Flour

For the batter

180g Plain Flour (Doves Farm Mix)
200ml Milk
1 egg (I used Orgran no egg)
1/2 tsp Bicarbonate Soda
1/2 tsp Xantham Gum
1/2 tsp Salt


Mix the batter ingredients together until they are well mixed, it will look quite thick but that is good as it holds together better.  You may find you need to add more milk to get it to a consistency that is right for you and as this recipe is gluten free, if you change it to "normal" flour, you might find that you need less milk.

Cut the fish into bite size pieces and put into a bowl.

Add two tablespoons of flour to the bowl the fish is in, and mix to coat the fish pieces.

Slowly drop pieces of fish into the batter and cover in batter. Drop in to either a deep fat fryer of hot oil (use tongs to save your fingers!) or a frying pan of hot oil. Ensure all the battered fish pieces are turned so that all sides of the fish are golden.

Remove the fish from the oil and serve!

I know that this is just a variation of fried fish, but honestly the Children loved it and ate more than one serving.
