Happy Halibut with a Side of O'Rings

Submitted to us by Doug Harcourt 
I find if you have a cold Steam Whistle while you cook it tastes a lot better.


Preheat deep fryer to 375F/190C. Preheat oven to 250F/120C. Mix all dry ingredients well. Whisk in 1 bottle Steam Whistle until smooth. Let stand 15 to 20 mins. Slice onion into 1/4 inch slices. Separate into rings. Dip rings into Beer Batter and deep fry approximately 1 to 2 minutes, turning once. Transfer to paper towel lined baking sheet. Season to taste & keep warm in oven. Lightly flour Halibut. Dip in Beer Batter & deep fry 6 to 8 minutes turning once. Plate with lemon wedgies & Tartar Sauce.


  • 1 lb. Halibut fillets
  • 1 medium Spanish onion
  • 1-1/2 cup of flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne (or to taste)
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • Tartar Sauce (homemade is best)
