>>>for garlic salt:
1⁄3 c
dried garlic flakes
1 c
sea salt
1 T
black pepper corms
>>>Wet ingredients:
egg, beaten
1 t
honey or coconut sugar
1 t
lemon or kalamansi juice
3⁄4 c
Beer (go for your favorite!)
1 t
prepared mustard
>>>Dry Ingredients:
1⁄2 c
all purpose flour
1 t
onion powder
1 T
garlic, finely chopped
1⁄2 t


Preparing the garlic salt

Mix together dried garlic flakes, salt and black pepper then grind using a food processor until fine.
Preparing the batter
In a mixing bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, stir to mix the dry ingredients.  Then gradually pour in wet ingredients to dry, mixing gently but do not over-mix. We don’t need the batter smooth. Minimal clumps are all right.
Preparing the fish
Rinse fish fillets then pat dry with kitchen paper towel.  They should have enough moisture to hold garlic salt to taste.  Sprinkle the entire surface with your favorite garlic salt (to taste) and set aside.

Heat oil over medium heat.  When oil is hot but not smoking (just ready to fry), dip the prepared fillet in the batter, and then begin frying until both sides are golden brown.  Over-cooking fish may make it tougher, so fry with care!

Place fried fillets over paper towel so that extra oils are absorbed.

Enjoy with your favorite fries!
