Easy Fish and Chips

1. Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed pot until a deep-fry thermometer inserted in the oil registers 360ºF.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, a big pinch of salt and some pepper. Whisk in the beer, and then the eggs.

3. In batches, dust the fish with flour, and then carefully dip into the batter. Shake off any excess, and then gently place into the oil. Fry until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and season immediately with salt and pepper.
