Review of Budweiser Beer Battered Cod by Seapak

Budweiser Beer Battered Cod by Seapak

Mothers everywhere know their children's favorite meal – fish sticks and Mac & Cheese. Frozen fish sticks used to be really good (even adults liked them), but lately it seems they are not as tasty as they used to be.  It seems to me that many of the frozen breaded or battered fish products have changed in recent years to a lesser quality (or my taste buds don't care for them as much).  But recently I discovered a frozen fish product that is not only VERY tasty, but does not have that 'packaged' taste so often prevalent.

The product is called Budweiser Beer Battered Cod produced by SeaPak, the Shrimp & Seafood Co.  It is wild caught cod fillets in a crunchy beer batter and it is delicious.  

It's like having your kitchen become your new favorite Pub. 


The SeaPak company is known as the Shrimp & Seafood Co. They are known as the #1 retail brand in the frozen specialty seafood category. 

SeaPak has been making great tasting and high quality seafood products for over 70 years. They choose only the best seafood for their products and their signature seasonings, breadings and sauces bring you an authentic coastal seafood flavor right to your home dining table.

They are known for their Shrimp dishes (including Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp, Shrimp Scampi and Popcorn Shrimp), as well as their Maryland style Crab Cakes and Fish products which appeal to seafood lovers of all ages.

This beer battered cod is very fresh tasting and delicious.  The product comes from a fishery that has been independently certified to the MSC's standard for a well-managed and sustainable fishery. (www.msc.org) 

Quick and easy to fix in a conventional oven at 425 degrees, cooking in a single layer on a baking sheet for 17-18 minutes. Turn over half way through cooking. 

Ways to Serve:

I have had this beer battered cod with Mac & Cheese and also as a fish sandwich on a roll with macaroni salad.  I think it would be good any way you serve it. The combination of Cod and the Budweiser Lager Beer used in the batter is yummy. You will find more serving suggestions and recipes for this product and the other SeaPak selections on the recipe section of their website

Where to Buy:

This Beer Battered Cod and other SeaPak seafoods are available from Target and Walmart and most of your favorite grocery stores (Kroger, Hy-Vee, Publix). 

For a quick and easy meal on no-time-to-cook busy days, these SeaPak seafood selections are a delicious product to keep in your freezer, and a satisfying meal choice.

  1. Sure sounds delicious, Elf. My dad used to make the best beer batter fish. I miss those delicious meals (especially when cooked up along the shore of a lake with fresh caught fish). Nothing better. I will give this cod a try, as I always trust and appreciate your recommendations and taste in food. Thanks!

    1. Frozen fish are a convenient alternative when fresh-caught fish along the shores of a lake are not available. I, too, remember early morning lake fishing with my dad -- I really didn't much like fishing (or getting up on a vacation day at the crack of dawn) but with 3 siblings I loved being out alone with my dad one-on-one. And, fresh-caught perch & sunfish were fantastically delicious fried up for breakfast. Thanks for visiting my frozen fish review, Diana.

  2. Battered Cod is my favorite fish! While I have never tried the Seapak brand, I do enjoy frozen cod. It is so convenient to have on-hand for busy days. Now I want my own frozen cod for dinner tonight! Thank you for a great idea and recommendation.

    1. btw, I understand some companies are substituting dogfish in their fish sticks and fish filets. It is not as tasty as cod!

    2. I have been very pleased with all the SeaPak products, Mouse. BTW, the best cod I have ever had were Pacific Ocean Ling Cod and Rock Cod personally caught by my commercial fisherman neighbor when we lived in California. When Patrick would come back with a batch, we would have a 2-family fish fry at his house, along with fried potatoes, batter fried onion rings, cole slaw and garlic bread. We used his 'secret' fish batter, which is very much like a tempera batter. It was a fantastic treat. Then he would sell the cod filets to us for $1.00/pound. Boy, do I ever miss those days! There was never a better meal, unless you count the fresh shrimp meals we used to have while living along the Atlantic Coast! :)

  3. Although I don’t eat fish or seafood, I’m considered something of an anomaly in that regard here in New England! My father-in-law doesn’t care for most fish, either, but my mother-in-law loves it, so I’ll have to tell her about this Seapak fresh-frozen, wild-caught cod entree with the Budweiser lager beer batter. I do love beer-battered vegetables (onion rings, zucchini sticks, tempura, etc.), so I can definitely appreciate a nice beer batter made with Bud lager. 😊

  4. We are not much on eating fish, but these do sound good. Thanks for the recommendation.

    1. You should try it just to be loyal since the batter is made with the St. Louis 'Buddweiser' beer... LOL.

  5. Beer battered fish sound delightful. We love fresh fish, but tend to eat it without a lot of "extras". This though sounds like something we should try at least once. If we like it, it could become a staple. I'll let you know!

  6. We always have SeaPak butterfly and popcorn shrimp in our freezer. I find so easy to just pop them in the oven along with some crispy french fries for a quick and perfect meal. I've never tried these fish fillets, but will very soon. Thanks Pat!!

    1. I think the SeaPak products are really tasty, and very handy to have on hand in the freezer.

  7. Oh Elf, that looks and sounds absolutely delicious. I really think my mother would enjoy this. I know my kids would. Being on Keto, I don't do breaded, but the family loves it.

  8. Sorry you have to 'miss out' due to your diet, Barbara, but I hope your family gets to try this tasty dish. Thanks for dropping by.

  9. This fish...is soooooo good! WALMART DOES NOT CARRY IT! CANT FIND IT

  10. When I lived in Colorado they had this Budweiser Frozen Cod and it's every bit as good as they say it looks just like the package picture does and I cannot find it at my Walmart store here in Oklahoma I did find the shrimp haven't tried it but I guess I'll try Target and see if I can find it both

    1. Glad you liked it. I thought it was the best frozen breaded fish I've ever tried. I originally found it in a Walmart in the Quad Cities in Iowa. Now I've moved to KC. Will have to see if I can find it here. Good luck with Target. Also, sometimes various grocery stores carry it.
