Tips and Recommendations:

- For a healthier option, you can bake the fish instead of frying it. Simply place the battered fish fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 400°F for about 15-20 minutes, or until crispy and cooked through.
- Experiment with different types of fish, such as tilapia or sea bass, to find your favorite flavor combination.
- Serve the dish with a side of tartar sauce or malt vinegar for an extra burst of flavor.
- Make sure the oil is hot enough before frying the fish to ensure a crispy exterior.
- To make the batter even more flavorful, add a pinch of paprika or garlic powder to the flour mixture.
- When preparing the mushy peas, don't overcook them to maintain their vibrant green color and slightly firm texture.
- Serve the beer-battered fish and mushy peas with a side of crispy fries or a fresh green salad for a complete meal.
