    Crispy Fish
  1. For Beer Batter: Combine dry ingredients in steel mixing bowl and mix well to incorporate. Add vodka and beer to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until there are no more lumps. Store refrigerated until ready to use.
  2. For Crispy Fish: Add cod strips to AP flour and toss well until fully covered. Shake off excess flour from fish and add to beer batter. Coat the fish in the beer batter thoroughly. Working in batches, drain excess beer batter from fish pieces one at a time, and gently drop into deep fryer set to 350°F. Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 4-6 minutes, turning gently to promote even cooking. Once finished, remove from fryer and season with kosher salt.
