- 1 1/2 cups cups beer (or substitute seltzer water)
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 1/4 cups panko breadcrumbs
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the beer or seltzer, flour, cornstarch, salt, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. The batter will bubble at first, then settle
Pour the panko breadcrumbs into another bowl. Have an empty plate handy for the breaded fish.
Dip each piece of fish into the batter. When you pull the fish out of the batter, let the excess batter run back into the bowl.
After dipping in the batter, gently roll each piece in panko crumbs to coat. Leaving too much batter on the fish will lead to clumping, so make sure your fish is only lightly coated with batter before breading. Place the breaded fish onto the empty plate.
