2 quarts vegetable oil for frying

8 (4-ounce) fillets of cod

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup all-purpose flour

Two tablespoons of garlic powder

Two tablespoons paprika

Two teaspoons salt

Two teaspoons of ground black pepper

One egg, beaten

1 (12 fluid ounces) can or bottle of beer, or as needed


Heat oil in a deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Cleanse the cod fillets, dry them, then season by adding spice and salt.

Mix flour, garlic powder, salt, paprika, and black pepper in a bowl. Add egg and stir to mix. Gradually incorporate enough beer to form an even batter.

Dip the cod fillets in the batter until coated. Take care to lower the fillets one at one time into the hot oil.
