Missallfun loves a good fish fry

Hot chick seeking flavorful, crispy, semi-salty,tender, flaky, yummy goodness recipes. Preferably a good source of protien that pairs nicely with a frosty beer. This is what I found. Don't you just love how the New York Times reads your mind?

Fried Fish With Vodka and Beer Batter

1 1/2 pounds (about 4 large fillets) turbot, sole or flounder
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups white rice flour; more for dusting
2 to 3 quarts vegetable oil for deep-frying
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups vodka
1 1/4 cups lager beer.

1. Rinse fish fillets, and dry with paper towels. Season well with salt and pepper, and dust with rice flour, shaking off any extra. Set aside.

2. Place a wide, deep pan over medium heat. Add oil to a depth of at least 1 1/2 inches, and bring to 375 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer. In a medium bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 cups rice flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly stir in the vodka and beer to make a batter. (Don’t make batter ahead of time, or the bubbles from the lager will be lost.)

3. Dip one fillet into batter to coat it completely, and lower into hot oil. Repeat with other fillets. When undersides of fillets are golden brown, after 1 or 2 minutes, turn, and brown other sides, a minute or two. Lift from oil, drain and serve.

Yield: 4 servings.
