" This is a great beer batter fish recipe and is very easy to do. Yummy and great! "

2 quarts vegetable oil for deep-frying
4 (8-ounce) cod filets
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 egg, beaten
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer

Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Rinse fish and pat dry; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Combine flour, garlic powder, paprika, 2 teaspoons salt and 2 teaspoons pepper. Stir egg into dry ingredients. Gradually mix in beer until a thin batter is formed. You should be able to see the fish though the batter after it has been dipped.

Drop fillets into the batter. Cook one at a time, turning once, until both sides are golden brown. Drain briefly on a paper towel and serve warm.
