{cleaned up} Beer Battered Tilapia

From time to time I crave Fish and Chips. My recipe is a {cleaned up} version of the deep fried classic. It has added protein with the wheat flour and almond meal in the batter. And most importantly, it satisfies my craving.

{cleaned up} Beer Battered Tilapia


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (plus extra for coating)
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 (12 oz) bottle of beer
  • 6 tilapia fillets (or fish of your choosing)
  • olive oil


1) In a large shallow bowl add a small amount flour and toss tilapia fillets in flour to coat and set aside.
2) Add flour, almond meal, sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, and beer to bowl and whisk until combined. (it should be the consistency of pancake batter)
3) Add approx 3 Tbps of olive oil to skillet and heat to Med-High heat.
4) Dredge fillets in batter (coating it evenly) and add 2-3 fillets to hot skillet. You don't want to over crowd the skillet.
5) Cook on each side approx 2-3 minutes.
6) Remove from skillet and repeat the steps until all fillets are cooked.

Serve it along side these Garlic Herb Fries and you have a {cleaned up} version of Fish and Chips. Now, don't forget to serve some veggies too! YUM!

NOTE: Feel free to spice up the batter by adding chili powder or paprika.
