    Crispy, aromatic and tender fried perch fillets.


    • 500 g perch fillets (fresh or frozen and thawed)
    • 100 g flour
    • 100 g corn flour
    • 1/2 tbs sea salt
    • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
    • 1 tbs seasoning mix (or Old Bay seasoning)
    • 300ml light beer
    • 1/2 cup peanut oil
    • Seasoning mix*:
    • 1 tbs black peppercorn
    • 6 bay leaves
    • 1/2 tsp cardamom
    • 4 cloves garlic
    • 1/2 tsp ground sweet paprika
    • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    • Pinch of cinnamon, allspice and ginger
    • Quantity is enough for several uses in different dishes (savoury pancakes, meat and fish batters)


    1. Prepare the seasoning mix: finely grind all the spices (in a coffee mill, for example). Since you do not need the whole quantity, store the mix in an airtight glass bottle and refrigerate for future use.
    2. Mix flour and corn flour, salt and pepper. Add the seasoning to flour mixture, stir.
    3. Slowly add beer, whisking constantly until a batter consistency.
    4. Coat filets with batter and fry in hot oil about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Set aside to a warm place.
    5. From the remaining batter form small pancakes and fry in the same oil. They make great accompaniment to the fillets.
    6. Serve immediately with potato salad.
