Fish nuggets are portioned, breaded & fried pieces of fish fillet (for example cod or pollack). The fish fillets are cut into bite-sized cubes, then turned into a beer-batter & finally deep-fried in plenty of oil until golden brown & crispy.
Along with a dip of fresh herbs, mayonnaise & yoghurt, the fish nuggets are a tasty alternative to the familiar chicken nuggets or breaded meat. I wish you lots of fun cooking 😉

- 200 milliliters beer
- 125 grams flour
- 75 grams cornstarch
- 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder
- 125 grams mayonnaise
- 125 grams yogurt
- A few sprigs fresh parsley
- A few sprigs fresh dill
- Salt & pepper
- Oil for deep-frying
- 1 lemon
Required kitchen gadgets, helper & preparations:
- Small bowl for the dipping sauce

- Kitchen paper
…for th edipping sauce:
Finely chop dill & parsley & add to a small bowl. Stir together chopped herbs with 125 grams mayonnaise & 125 grams yogurt, then season well with salt & pepper to taste & set aside until serving.
…for the beer batter:
Put 125 grams of flour, 75 grams of cornstarch, 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder & a good pinch of salt & pepper in a mixing bowl and mix briefly. Add 200 milliliters beer & stir together with a whisk or blender until a lump-free & viscous batter.
…for the fish nuggets:
Cut pollack or cod into bite-sized cubes. Heat up a large pot or wok adding 1 – 1½ liters of oil for deep-frying (the oil is hot enough, if you dip a wooden stick into the oil & immediately small bubbles arise).
As soon as the oil is hot enough, use a fork to pull the fish cubes through the prepared beer batter, allow the excess batter to drip off a bit & then fry until golden brown for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally.
Lift the done fish nuggets out of the oil using a skimmer and allow to drain briefly on kitchen paper, then serve along with the prepared dipding sauce and a few lemon wedges. I wish you lots of fun cooking;)
