  • 4-6 bass fillets
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2/3 cup flat beer
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Cole slaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Whisk 1/3 cup flour, salt, and pepper in medium bowl to blend.

Whisk in beer. Add enough oil to heavy large skillet to reach depth of 1/2 inch. Heat oil to 350F degrees.

Place remaining 2 tablespoons flour on plate. Coat fish with the flour. Dip the filets in the batter, letting the excess drip off.

Fry fish until golden brown and crisp, about 4 minutes per side. Drain fish on paper towels.
