Fish & Chips

2 pounds fresh white fish (cut into pieces)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 14.9 Oz beer (I used Guinness)
1/2 teasppon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 tablspoons canola oil (for the batter)
3 big white potatoes (cut into chips)
4 cups canola oil (for frying) 

In a bowl put the egg and beat well. Add the flour and beat until blended. Pour the beer slowly and mix into the flour with a fork or a an electric mixer.  Add at the 3 tablespoons oil, then sprinkle the salt and pepper.

Prepare the white fish (cod, catfish, halibut, or any white fish) by cutting them into desired pieces, then dry them with a paper towel. Heat the cooking oil in a deep pan to 375 degrees F. Dip each piece of fish into the batter and gently drop into the heated oil and fry for about 8 minutes or until golden brown. When cooked transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain the oil. Repeat the process. Do not crowd the pan.  Fry only a few pieces at a time.  Alternate by frying the potato chips.

Serve with malt vinegar or tartar sauce (see recipe on another post).
