How did you fare with last summer's fishing excursions? If you were lucky, you may have caught enough fish to preserve and serve all year long using your FoodSaver® Food Preservation System. The best part about vacuum sealing your fresh-caught fish with the FoodSaver® System is that it keeps it fresh up to 5X longer (compared to ordinary storage methods) and prevents freezer burn. When you serve it, your fish tastes as great as it did on the day you pulled them from the water. So now is the perfect time to thaw your fresh fish and get cooking.

Beer Battered Fish

If you caught a white fish such as walleye, sunfish, perch or bass, it'll taste wonderfully buttery when cooked in a crispy, flaky beer batter. Pair this entree with a side of thick-cut fries with salt and malt vinegar.

  • 1 bottle of beer
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup salt
