Beer Battered Fish and Seafood
For Betty in Warsaw who wanted a batter to fry fish in.

Beer battered Tilapia or 2 lbs. fish, shrimp, oysters, clams
8 Tbs. self-rising flour
2 Tbs. olive oil
About a half a bottle of good beer
1/2 tsp. salt
Oil for frying
Kosher salt

Mix the flour, oil, salt and beer together in a bowl. Add the beer last and do it slowly, stirring all the time. You want enough beer in the batter to make it the consistency of house paint, or
pancake batter.

Put the batter in the fridge for 20 minutes. After 10 minutes, take out the fish and salt it liberally. Let it sit on the counter for 5 minutes or so, then slice it into pieces about the size of a
large shrimp.

Heat the oil to 350 degrees. I use canola oil, but any vegetable oil will do. When the oil is hot, dredge the fish into the batter and let it get coated thickly. Gently place it in the oil and repeat. Do not crowd the pot or deep-fryer. Do this in several batches. Fry until the fish is golden brown, moving it around the oil so it does not stick anywhere. This take about 5-8 minutes.

Let the fish drain on a wire rack or paper towels.
