Recipe of the Quarter: Seybrew Beer-Battered Fish and Chips


Freshly-caught Job fish battered in one of Seychelles' finest brews, served with tartar sauce, saffron mayonnaise and French fries, is a true delicacy. Job is a white, flaky fish, popular in the Seychelles, with a subtle flavor – but you can substitute Tilapia, or similar, stateside.
Ingredients (Serves 4):

Beer-Battered Fish

  • 800g Job fish (or sustainably-caught local white, fleshy fish)
  • Pinch of sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 250g Tempura flour
  • 350ml Seybrew beer (or a local beer)
  • 2L Sunflower oil
  • 500g Potatoes, cut into French fries


  • 2 Free-range egg yolks
  • 30ml White wine vinegar
  • 15ml Dijon mustard
  • 500ml Sunflower oil
  • Pinch of Maldon salt and cracked black pepper

Tartar Sauce

  • 100g Red onions, finely chopped
  • 100g Capers, finely chopped
  • 100g Gherkins, finely chopped
  • 15ml Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • Mayonnaise

Saffron Mayonnaise

  • Pinch of saffron strands
  • Mayonnaise


  • First make the mayonnaise by placing the egg yolks into the blender along with the mustard and white wine vinegar.
  • Add the oil in a steady stream and keep blending until all the oil has been incorporated.
  • You can also make this by hand in a bowl by whisking at the same time as adding the oil in a steady stream.
  • Divide the mayonnaise into two bowls.
  • Place the onions, gherkins, capers and parsley into one bowl, stir in some mayonnaise and check the seasoning.
  • Place the saffron into the other bowl and add some strands of saffron, stir to bring the
  • color out.
  • Place the oil into a frying pan and heat gently.
  • Once hot, fry the French fries and cook until golden brown. Drain on paper towel and keep in a warm place.
  • Cut the fish into smaller pieces, roughly 100g each, to make it quicker to cook.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper.
  • Place the tempura flour into a bowl. Add the Seybrew local beer and stir until combined.
  • Dip the fish into the batter and drop it gently into the oil. Make sure the oil is hot by testing a piece of battered fish first.
  • Fry the remaining fish until golden brown and drain on paper towel.
  • Serve with the tartar sauce and saffron mayonnaise as well as wedges of lemons and limes.
