Beer Battered Tilapia

Tonight, I made beer battered fish Tilapia, Mac and cheese, and broccoli. The family always goes crazy for it! I got this recipe for beer battered fish from Alton Brown.

1 1/2 pounds of firm-fleshed white fish like cod or Tilapia

Beer Batter-
Whisk the following in a medium mixing bowl:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 dash Old Bay seasoning
Whisk together slowly with 1 cup of brown beer. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Heat some vegetable oil in a pan. While it is heating up, dredge your fish in some cornstarch and tap off any excess cornstarch. Dip in to the batter and put in oil. Don’t crowd the pan. When the batter is set on one side, turn the fish over and cook until golden brown, about 4 -5 minutes on each side depending on thickness.
