    Steve_G's Note:

    Pretty standard fish and chips style fish. the beer batter and cornstarch make for a very crispy crust. Not a whole lot of grease if you're careful. From Alton Brown's Good Eats

      Ive tried several different batters and this one was the best. The fish is nice an crispy. I just added a little more beer to thin it out as I didn't want bready. Came out awesome. Thanx Chef!

      Lovely! I am not much of a fish lover, but my husband is, but amazingly enough, we BOTH loved this recipe. Please consider revising the ingredient list to: safflower oil (for frying, 1 gallon) so that the entire gallon's calories don't factor into the nutrition facts. This recipe is a keeper and worth cleaning the kitchen for!

      This is the 1st time I've tried fried fish, and let me say...it was a HIT!!! My in-laws were over and I was nervous about trying a new recipe, but it turned out great :) I used 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper, but next time I'll use 1 TBL because we LOVE the kick! I also used about a 1/4 a bottle of canola oil instead of safflower oil in a frying pan instead of a deep fryer. And, oh yeah, I also used a Hef bottle of beer instead of brown beer and it was great! Thanks for posting this recipe.
