DIRECTIONS

  • Sift flour and salt, add butter and egg; add beer gradually, add beaten egg white, stirring only until smooth.
  • Let stand for 1 hour in a warm place.
  • In a deep fryer or heavy pot heat oil to 375 degrees.
  • Dip fish in batter then fry in hot oil until golden brown (fry the fish in batches).
  • Allow to drain on a heavy brown paper bag or on double paper towels.
  • ** It is best to use thinner pieces of fish if you intend to fry the whole piece or just cut into large chunks.
