  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs (1 kg) cod fillets or halibut fillets
  • 6 cups vegetable oil for deep frying
Batter:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pepper
  • 1 cup water

Method

Cut cod into 3-inch (8 cm) chunks. Pat cod dry with paper towel.

In deep-fryer or deep heavy-bottomed pot, heat oil to 375°F (190°C) or until 1-inch (2.5 cm) cube of white bread turns golden in 30 seconds. Using fork, dip cod, 1 piece at a time, into batter, letting excess drip back into bowl. Cook, in batches and turning halfway through, until golden, about 3 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel-lined baking sheet. Keep warm in 250°F (120°C) oven for up to 30 minutes.
