Carp in crispy beer dough

Carp in crispy beer dough

Sprinkle the fish pieces with a few drops of olive oil, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.

Separately, prepare a dough with the consistency of a stronger cream as follows: beat the egg well, add the beer and then add the corn and flour little by little so that no lumps form. Add to the dough and a little dry dill and mix well.

Heat the oil in which I put the butter in a pan. Put the fish through the dough above and then put it in the pan with hot oil. Fry on the right heat, even small, about 5 minutes. on each side until it browns nicely. We should not fry over high heat because we risk that the fish is not made just to burn the dough. When the fish is ready, remove on a paper towel.

Serve with a garnish, I preferred a garnish with couscous.

Good appetite!

The cleaned and washed fish is cut into 3-4 cm slices. and salt. Let it sit for 1/2 hour.

Peel the potatoes, cut them into cubes and boil them in salted water.

Boil the peas with 2 tablespoons of water, under the lid, until soft (you can use canned peas).

Pass the fish slices through this dough and fry in hot oil and let it drain.
Arrange the fish slices on a plate, garnish with tomato slices, green parsley and lemon slices. Mix the potatoes with the finely chopped green parsley, peas and arrange in a salad bowl and serve with the fish, moisten the preparation with a dry white wine.

Tips & tricks for tempura

All vegetables should be portioned at least 30 minutes before frying and left on a shredder. The water in them is the enemy no. 1 of a crunchy tempura. For the same reason, neither the vegetables nor the dough are salted, these being seasoned only after frying.

What vegetables are suitable for tempura?

What you have at hand and you like it! I used pumpkin, eggplant, carrots, mushrooms, bunches of cauliflower (or broccoli), green onions, new potatoes. All must be cut into suitable pieces: bars or washers. I cut the potatoes into very thin slices.

Bread with beer dough and sesame

[preparation title = & # 8221Preparation & # 8221]
I use country flour, it is not as fluffy as the one from the trade, but I am very satisfied with it and my dishes are very good.
First we make the mayo: we heat the milk, then we rub in a bowl the yeast with the sugar until they liquefy, we add the warm milk and a handful of flour and we homogenize. Cover the bowl and leave to rise for about 10 minutes until it doubles in volume.

Sift the flour into the bowl in which we knead (a plastic bowl), make a hole in the middle where we pour the raised mayonnaise, salt and little by little the beer, mixing at the same time the flour from the edges.
Mix well with a wooden spatula, then turn the dough over on the work table and start kneading until the dough sticks to your hands.
Drain the oil on the table and pass the dough through it, so it doesn't stick.
Put the dough back in the plastic bowl, cover and leave to rise for about 20 minutes, then divide the dough into two equal parts and pass it through a little oil, sprinkle the sesame seeds and put in the trays.

I formed balls and passed them through oil on all sides, then sprinkled seeds on a plate and passed the balls through the seeds.

I placed them in the tray, covered them and left them to rise. I also put a ball in a tart form that I bought from and which I really like.

I didn't let it rise for more than 15 minutes, after which I baked at 18o degrees for 40 minutes.
The breads with beer came out very fluffy!

Ingredient Squid in crispy crust

  • 500 grams of frozen raw squid rings or 400 grams of fresh (frozen ones have an ice crust so it will be lost from the total amount) you can use, of course, whole raw squid, which will have to be cleaned and then cut into rings of 1 cm. thickness
  • 150 grams of flour
  • 1 large egg (60 grams)
  • 250 ml. beer (it is good to keep a little extra beer to dilute the dough that may thicken during preparation)
  • in addition: 5-6 tablespoons of flour mixed with 1 teaspoon of grated salt
  • salt pepper
  • optional: 1 tip of granulated garlic knife (I like to put, but very little)
  • plenty of oil for frying (minimum 500 ml.)
  • favorite sauce for serving, lemon

Prepare squid in crispy crust:

1. If whole squid are used, they will be cleaned as shown in the grilled seafood recipe, then the tubes will be cut perpendicular to their length in rings about 1 cm thick, and the tentacles will be kept for a risotto or another preparation.

2. If you use (as I did) frozen raw squid rings, put them in a bowl and cover with cold water to thaw (picture 1).

3. After thawing, the squid rings drain the water into a strainer (picture 2).

4. To prepare the dough, put in an egg bowl, 250 ml. of beer and 150 grams of flour, add 1 pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper to taste and if you like you can add other spices, I also put 1 pinch of granulated garlic (picture 3).

5. Homogenize everything with the pear-shaped target, without exaggerating with the mixing (picture 4). The dough should be like a slightly thicker pancake batter.

6. Separately, mix the rest of the flour with 1 teaspoon of salt in a bowl. Squid rings are rolled in salted flour (picture 5).

7. Heat the oil in a deeper pan (the layer of oil should be 2 fingers good).

8. Squid rings dressed in flour are dipped in the dough (picture 6).

9. Drain the squid rings from the excess dough and place them carefully (be careful not to splash) in the hot oil.

Immediately after putting the first squid rings in the oil, the heat is reduced to medium, the oil must be hot enough to sizzle when you put the squid in the pan, but not so hot that the crust burns and the raw squid remains in the middle. It is good that, immediately after roasting squid rings, take hot oil with a large spoon and pour it on top of the squid, this will prevent the dough crust from cracking.

The squid is fried in oil in turn on both sides until they turn golden brown. Do not cram them in the pan, they will stick together. If the dough becomes too viscous, dilute with 2-3 tablespoons of beer.

The fried squid are removed on absorbent paper napkins to remove excess oil.

Serve squid with lemon and a sauce to taste, I prepare a sauce to please my family whose secret recipe I will declassify right now: 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, 1 glass of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of ketchup, juice and peel from 1/2 lemon, salt, freshly ground pepper and 3 tablespoons of chopped green onion (or chives) leaves. If you put another glass of cold beer next to it, you really feel like you're on vacation!

Depending on the amount on the plate, breaded squid can be served as an appetizer, snack or & # 8230 you can really get full (as we did). Good appetite!

I learned the recipe for the dough from Maya, who posted it on the kitchen years ago, after learning it from Jamie. :)
