Beer Battered Fish Recipe for St. Patrick's Day

Get ready to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the Ito family in style with this mouthwatering beer battered fish recipe! In this recipe, we combine our delicious albacore loin and a crispy beer batter that's going to be a HUGE hit with your friends and family! So get ready... let's dive in!


  • 1 lb fresh albacore loin
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup beer (Irish stout or your favorite ale)
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Lemon wedges for serving
  • Tartar sauce or malt vinegar for dipping


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Add the beer and egg to the dry ingredients, and whisk until smooth. Let the batter rest for 10-15 minutes while you prepare the albacore.
  3. Pat the albacore fillets dry with paper towels, then cut them into strips or chunks, depending on your preference.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large skillet to 375°F (190°C).
  5. Dip each albacore piece into the beer batter, coating it evenly.
  6. Carefully place the battered albacore into the hot oil, frying in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
  7. Fry the fish for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Use a slotted spoon to remove the fish from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  8. Serve the beer battered albacore hot with lemon wedges and your choice of tartar sauce or malt vinegar for dipping.


There you have it – a delicious beer battered fish recipe perfect for this year's St. Patrick's Day! Although we highly recommend using our delicious albacore loin, you can also substitute yellowtail or any other white fish. However, for the best flavor and quality, make sure to choose a reputable seafood supplier that offers fish that is as fresh as possible!!

Cheers to a festive and flavorful holiday!
