Of course, you can deep-fry any fish, but to my mind, cod works best, and is quintessentially British. Sealed in by a crisp, golden batter, the flakes of fish cook to pearly white perfection. This batter recipe is the best I have ever come across. It retains its crispness like no other; perhaps it has something to do with the potato flour and the beer.
