You do not need a deep fryer, in fact I just use my Dutch Oven with a good plug of frying oil. Definitely plan to stand by the stove for a few minutes until the fish is completely done.

4 white fish fillets (rock fish, cod, haddock, or halibut work great)(about 1 pound) 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided 1 teaspoon baking powder Salt as needed Black pepper as needed 1 egg 1 cup beer (preferably something light) Canola oil for frying* Dipping sauce of choice* Cut fish fillets into bite size pieces then sprinkle with salt and pepper to season.

Heat oil in deep fryer or a Dutch oven to 375 degrees. When ready to fry, dredge the fish pieces in flour first, then the batter.

The batter is thick, so I recommend keeping one hand for dredging and the other clean for frying. You will have to toss the fish in the batter with your hand to fully coat.
