Fried Fish New Orleans

2 lb Red snapper; cut 1 1/2" sq. pcs. (or use whitefish)
Tabasco sauce; to taste
2 Eggs; beaten
3/4 c Water
3/4 c Flour
1/4 c Cornstarch
1/4 ts Baking powder
Salt; to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
Peanut oil for deep-frying

Place the fish and Tabasco sauce in a stainless-steel bowl. Let marinate for 20 minutes. Mix the batter by whipping the eggs, adding the water. Blend the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt and pepper together in a dry bowl, using a fork. Gently stir this into the egg/water mixture. Do not try to get out all the small lumps. It will not matter. Do not overmix. Heat 4 cups of peanut oil to 375 to 400 degrees. Dip the marinated fish squares into the batter, then deep-fry until light brown, about 4 minutes. This recipe serves 4.
