Fish and Chips

1 1/2 lb sole fillet, skinned
lemon juice
salt and white pepper
1/4 cup flour
oil for frying

1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp oil
3/4 cup beer
1 egg white
pinch sugar

Wash fish filets in lemon and water. Season with salt and pepper.
Chill while you prepare the batter.

Sprinkle yeast over warm water. Let stand until dissolved. Place
flour in a bowl with the salt and sugar and make a well in the
center. Add the dissolved yeast, oil and 2/3 of the beer and stir
with a wooden spoon just to combine. Stir in remaining beer.

Let the batter stand, covered, in a warm place 30 to 35 minutes,
until it has thickened and becomes frothy

Dry fish with paper towels and cut each fillet diagonally in 2
pieces. Heat the oven to warm.

Stir together remaining flour, pepper and salt in a plate. Heat
the oil. Whip egg white until it forms soft peaks and fold it into
the batter.

Coat fish with seasoned flour, patting so they are evenly coated.
Shake off excess flour. Using a 2 pronged fork dip the fish in
the batter. Lift it out and hold it over the bowl 5 seconds to drip
off excess batter.

Carefully lower the piece of fish into the hot oil and deep fry ,
turning once until golden brown and crisp. Fry 1 or 2 pieces at
a time, transferring to paper towels as you go.

Keep warm in the oven until all fish is done, or until you finish
frying the potatoes. ( separate recipe) Serve with lemon wedges
and tartar sauce.

best fish fry I have ever cooked, September 23, 2004 - 05:25 PM
Reviewer: Darlene Fenik from Allegany Park, New York
made this batter for a group of 10 girls. Dipped yellow pike in batter. It was thin and I was a little worried but it puffed up and produced the most flavorful fish and coating I have ever eaten. Funny too, used my turkey fryer because of the quantity of fish needed to cook for and during the night at camp a momma bear and her babies were scooping in the oil for the pcs. left
