Aussie brewers are having a go at their favourite dish, battered fish.
“Beer battered fish” is one of the most popular dishes in the nation’s pubs and restaurants, and one that’s also found its way into popular music, too.
In a bid to emulate the dish, brewers have come up with their own take on the classic, using a beer battered, fried and grilled fish as the centrepiece.
The dish has been making the rounds on social media sites like Instagram and Vine, with some even posting their own recipes.
It’s been suggested that the dish may not be as fresh as you’d like it to be, but this recipe is definitely a keeper.
A recipe for Beer Belly Pork Belly Burger “It’s a good fish for a fishy sandwich,” said David Miller, who is a chef at Melbourne’s The Gorgie Bar.
His take on Beer Betta is very similar to this one.
He said that the main differences were the fish and the sauce.
Miller added that if you’re looking for a quick meal, you can always add some bacon or sausage.
