Beer Batter Halibut

1 pounds -- halibut
cooking oil to -- allow deep frying
1 cup flour -- one 12-ounce bottle
1 tablespoon paprika and 1 1/2 tsp -- salt

For this batter, good quality, light-colored beers work best. The flavor of dark beers is too strong.

Cut halibut into 1-inch-thick chunks. Heat oil in a deep-fat fryer to 375F

Make batter by combining remaining ingredients.

Dip the halibut into the batter and drop the pieces into the hot oil a few at a time.

Cook the fish chunks until the batter is golden brown for just a few minutes.

Halibut overcooks easily, so try not to overdo it.

Remove the fish pieces from the oil and drain on paper towels; serve piping hot with your favorite accompaniments.
