Beer-Battered Trout

Posted by Scott Sibley on

If you're fisherman who takes home enough catch to feed your family or enjoy a good shore lunch here is a classic recipe for tasty beer battered trout. For this recipe we'll be reffering to a rainbow or brook trout that are about 1lb but feel free to substitute to whatever your catching. Step one is catching your trout, for that check out our Tips For Spring Trout post.

Trout Frying in Pan

What you'll need:

  • 6 Trout (1lb)
  • 2.5 cups of flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1tbsp mild curry powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups of room temperature beer
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • lemon slices


Wash and pat dry the trout and put into bag with 1/2 cup of flour. Shake thoroughly until fish is coated and set aside.

Heat cooking oil to 375 F

Next mix the remaining 2 cups of flour, baking powder, salt, curry powder, eggs, beer and olive oil. Mix well, until mixture runs smooth. Dip both sides of fish into the mixture.

  • Hi all,

    Been fishing since I was able to hold a rod, been hooked (pardon the pun) ever since. Now my kids are starting to fish (as if there was any doubt LOL) and I was wondering if anyone ever used these for the kiddies rods? I was thinking of grabbing a few myself to be honest. They do not seem to be expensive, just wondering if anyone uses them?
