canola oil for frying
one egg white, beaten
½ cup beer
1/3cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
1/8 cup cornstarch

Clean your fish fillets so that most of the dark meat (gray) is trimmed off. Take out any pin bones. Rinse the fish and pat it dray with paper towels. Cut the fish into smaller pieces, about 4 “x 1 “ thick. Mix together the ingredients with a whisk.
