- Mix flour, baking powder, salt and beer in a bowl, stirring until a smooth batter is formed.
- Heat oil in heavy bottomed frying fan until very hot.
- Coat fish in flour first then in the batter. Add to the hot oil - taking care as this is very dangerous - and fry for 2 minutes until the batter is crispy and brown all over. Cook only 1 or two pieces at a time, so you don't overcrowd the pan. Remove fish and place on a piece of kitchen paper to drain before serving.
