Beer-battered Fish Fry
Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 10 mins
1 pint vegetable oil
2 lb fresh fish fillets (snapper or grouper)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 can beer
Fill a deep saucepan three-quarter full with oil. Heat to 375°F. Cut the fish fillets into serving-size pieces and brush with lime juice.
Mix two thirds of the flour with the salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the beer gradually, beating until the batter is smooth. Put the remaining flour on a plate.
Coat each piece of fish with flour, then dip it into the batter, coating well. Fry in the hot oil for 7-8 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper towel or brown paper.
Serve hot with fried potatoes and coleslaw.0
