1 (12 ounce) can light beer
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon paprika
Sift flour, salt and paprika together. Sift into beer, lightly beating with wire whisk until light and frothy. This mixture may be used at once or after standing for several hours. When using batter, stir from time to time to keep it thoroughly mixed. Flour fish and dip into batter. Let fish rest several minutes before frying so it will not be too drippy. Fry at about 400 degrees F in oil until golden brown.
NOTE: This is also an excellent batter for onion rings and other vegetables.
