Einstök Beer Battered Cod Fillets

with roasted potatoes in rosemary, sea salt & garlic aioli.

Einstök beer is Iceland’s #1 beer, and it was only a matter of time before we incorporated it into our cod fillets. We suggest their Icelandic White Ale because it’s uniquely flavorful and pairs well with fish. (If you’re 21, then make sure to save a beer for yourself afterward).

When making this hearty dish, potatoes and a light garlic aioli complement the fish making it great for dinner or a lazy Sunday afternoon!
