Easy Beer Battered Tilapia W/ Onion Rings Recipe @pinch

An easy dinner that may get kids to eat fish. Once fried, the coating on the tilapia and onion rings is crispy. The ingredients only had garlic powder as a seasoning, and we were unsure of how that would work. Turns out, garlic powder is all that's needed in the batter. Real quick, easy, and fun dinner that can be put together quickly. We can get frozen tilapia that's only 40 mg of sodium per 4 ounces, and beer batter doesn't need salt really. A really tasty treat. Kids might like it, I know I do!
