Hi Big Jim,

112g (3/4 cup) self-raising flour
38g (1/4 cup) cornflour
220ml (5 1/2 tablespoons) cold beer (excess beer must be consumed immediately)

Sift the flours together into a large bowl. Gradually whisk in beer to form a thin batter. Leave batter to stand in the refrigerator for about an hour. It must be very cold when immersed in oil. Stir before using.

800g skinless fish fillets
1/2 cup plain flour
750ml of oil, for deep-frying

Cut fish fillets into pieces if desired. Coat fish with flour.
Heat oil to 180 degrees Celsius in a deep fryer or saucepan over medium-high heat. If you don't have a deep-fry thermometer, you can use a small piece of bread to indicate the oil temperature. The oil has reached the correct temperature when the bread takes 30 seconds to turn golden brown.
Dip fish in batter, removing excess batter by gently wiping fish against the side of the bowl. Lower fish into hot oil (if you are using a saucepan, do this slowly so that the fish doesn’t fall to the bottom and stick). Fry fish in batches so as not to overcrowd the fryer or saucepan. Fry until golden brown, turning once during cooking.
Drain cooked fish on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
Serves 4.
