Wonderful light and crispy batter. The secret is in the beer, your fish will stay crisp even when you're keeping it warm in the oven. Serves 2 to 4
Pepper to taste
Cod or Haddock Fillets
Fill deep fryer half full with oil; preheat to 375°F [190°C] If you don't have a deep fryer, use a deep heavy saucepan and an accurate thermometer.
Cut fillets into serving-size pieces; sprinkle lightly with pepper and dredge in flour.
Batter Mix flour and salt, whisk in egg then gradually add in beer, mix until smooth.
Dip fish into batter and fry in small batches, two or three at a time, turning once, until golden brown, around 5-7 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon; drain on paper towel. Then place on cookie sheet in warm oven
until all have been deep fried.
