1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 bottle beer
1 small spanish onion
6 cup vegetable oil, for deep-frying
1 lb. haddock or 1 lb. cod, fillets

Beer Battered Fish and Onion Rings

Preheat deep-fryer to 375ºF and oven to 250ºF.

In bowl, whisk flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and cayenne. Whisk in beer until smooth. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel onion. Cut into 1/2-inch thick slices. Separate into rings.

In deep-fryer or deep heavy-bottomed pot, pour in enough oil to come at least 2 inches up side. Heat to 375ºF or until a 1-inch cube of bread turns golden in 20 seconds. Using fork, dip 4 or 5 onion rings into batter; cook in oil for about 1 minute or until golden brown, turning halfway through. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel-lined baking sheet. Keep warm in 250ºF for up to 1 hour. Repeat with remaining onions.

Meanwhile, cut fillets into serving-size pieces. Dredge fish in flour; shake off excess. Dip fish into batter and fry in oil, turning once, until golden brown, about 7 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon; drain on paper towel-lined baking sheet.

Sprinkle with salt to taste.

Serve with lemon wedges and tartar sauce
