How to make it
- Combine flour, paprika and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Reserve 1/4 cup seasoned flour.
- Whisk beer into flour mixture in bowl and let stand 1 hour at room temperature.
- Combine lemon juice and onion in a baking dish large enough to contain fish in one layer. Arrange fish in dish and turn to coat thoroughly. Let stand 30 minutes at room temperature.
- Heat 1 1/2 inch oil in an electric deep fryer (or dutch oven) to 375° F.
- Make certain potatoes are thoroughly dry by patting them with paper towels before lowering into fryer basket in hot oil.
- Fry 1/2 of potatoes about 2 minutes, until just tender but not brown. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining potatoes.
- Dredge fish in reserved seasoned flour and coat one piece of fish at a time with the beer batter, letting excess drip off. Add a bit of extra flour if batter is too thin to stick to fish.
- Remove with tongs and place into hot oil. Fry about 2 minutes, without overcrowding, until lightly golden.
- Shake fryer basket so that fish will not stick together. Drain on paper towels and keep warm. Repeat with remaining fish.
- Return about half the potatoes to the hot oil and fry 2 minutes until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and keep warm. Repeat with remaining potatoes.
- Serve fish and chips with lemon wedges or malt vinegar if desired.
