Beer Battered Fish
Continuing with food spiked with some alcohol, I never knew that you could batter your fries with beer!!! who would have known that adding beer it would make your fish crispier and take that batter to the next level of flavor? Ingredients: - 2 cups (250 grams) all-purpose flour - 1 teaspoon (4 grams) baking powder - 1 (12 ounce) (355ml) bottle of beer, any light colored beer - 1 teaspoon (8 grams) salt - 1 teaspoon (8 grams) freshly cracked black pepper - 1 teaspoon (8 grams) garlic powder - ½ teaspoon (4 grams) cayenne pepper - 1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour (this is for dredging) - 1½ pounds fresh cod fillets, cut into long strips (5 to 6 inches long) - canola oil for frying - lemon wedges, for drizzling at the end - malt vinegar, for drizzling at the end - fresh parsley, chopped for garnish Preparation: 1) In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and beer until a smooth thin batter forms. If the batter is too thick add a bit more beer (or water or club soda) to thin it out. If the batter is too thin add a bit more flour to thicken it. It should be thinner than a pancake batter but slightly thicker than a crepe batter. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes but 2 hours would be better. 2) Cut the cod fillets into (5 to 6 inch) strips. My rule of thumb is that 1 (8-ounce) fillet can feed about 2 people. Pat the fish with a paper towel to make sure it is completely dry. Season both sides with some of the salt, black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Reserve half of the seasonings for later on. In a shallow dish, pour the 1 cup of all-purpose flour and the reserved salt, black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper, whisk or stir to combine. That is your flour dredging. We do this so the beer batter can stick to the fish. 3) In a large pot, or dutch oven, heat oil to 375°. If you fill up the pot halfway with oil, that should be fine. Once the oil is hot, the fish is ready to be fried. Working with one strip at a time, dip the fish into the seasoned flour, coat evenly on both sides. Then dip the fish into the beer batter, completely dunking it until it is fully submerged. Drain excess batter and then carefully drop the battered fish into the oil. Don’t overcrowd the pot, work in batches. 4) Fry for 4 to 6 minutes on the first side. Flip it over and continue to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on the second side. Only flip the fish once. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Transfer to a cooling rack placed on top of a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining fish. To keep the fried fish warm and crispy until ready to eat, place the baking sheet in a 200°F oven. Serve warm with lemon wedges, malt vinegar and a sprinkling of chopped fresh parsley.

3 Super Salads to Power You Through the Week
Are you dreading it's only Tuesday? I'm feeling the same. I barely recovered from a bad cold and my body is lacking energy. I know that because my digestive system has been a weird lately. Which is why I'm sharing three super salads to help you (and me) power through the week! Spicy Shrimp & Avocado Salad Staring at the photo alone already brighten my appetite. This green salad is filled with vitamin and good fats. Grilled some shrimp on a pan, chop up some spinach, baby kale and cucumbers, toss in a few cubes of avocado and you're done! Lime juice is sufficient for me but if you like more flavor. The original recipe uses a miso dressing. To make the dressing simple combine 1-inch peel ginger, 3 tablespoons lime juice, 1 1/2 tablespoon white miso and 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Adapted from: Pinch of Yum Fresh Spring Salad with Poached Cod Here's a nice salad to kick start your spring and to bring balance to your tummy. I know eating fish is healthy for me but I hardly eat them. I could only do two bites of raw salmon and I'm done. To get a little omega-3 in my diet poached cod doesn't sound like a horrible idea (I'm horrible with the skillet anyways). Just make sure you don't overcook it. 5-6 minutes in boiling water is sufficient! Take it out and plate it on a salad with parsley, beets, radishes, spring onions, pea shoots and parsley. For the dressing - 2 tbsp rapeseed oil or olive oil, 1/2 tbsp white balsamic vinegara, squeeze of lemon, sea salt to taste. Adapted from: Dagmar's Kitchen Edamame and Radish Salad I promise this is the simplest super salad ever. Boil a cup of edamame and toss it diced onions (or shallots) and radishes. All you need for the dressing is - 2 tablespoons vinegar, a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar (no more than 1/8 teaspoon). Just before tossing everything together add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
