   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2   lb           Fish fillets
                         Oil
      1/2   c            Beer
      1/2   c            Self-rising flour
                         -----THE BATTER-----
      2/3   c            Beer
      1/3   c            Lemon juice
    1                    Egg
      1/2   c            Bisquick
      1/2   c            Self-rising flour
 
   THE BATTER: In a 1 1/2 quart mixing bowl, with wire
   whisk, whip 2/3 cup beer, lemon juice, egg, Bisquick,
   and 1/2 cup self-rising flour together till smooth.
   Then let it stand ten minutes at room temperature
   before using.  Meanwhile place two soup or cereal
   bowls on counter near the stove so that you can work
   quickly in coating food and getting it into the hot
   oil.
   
   In one small bowl put 1/2 cup beer and into the other
   put 1/2 cup self-rising flour.  Have a cookie sheet on
   hand.  Cover half of it with paper towels for draining
   the fried foods.  The other half leave plain for
   drying the coated food before you dip it into batter.
   
   Allow 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 lbs. fish fillets to serve 4
   people.  Cut each fillet in half to resemble
   triangles.  Dip 1 piece at a time, first into beer.
   Let excess drip off. Coat lightly then in the
   self-rising flour.
   
   Place floured pieces on cookie sheet to dry 2 or 3
   minutes.  Then spear piece with 3-tined fork or tip of
   sharp knife & coat in prepared batter...evenly but
   lightly, letting excess drip back into bowl of batter.
   
   Fry few pieces at a time in 385 to 400 degrees F oil,
   at least 2 1/2 to 3 deep in heavy saucepan or use
   electric fry pan with temperature control dial to
   regulate heat of oil.
   
   Allow about 3 or 4 minutes per side for each piece of
   batter-coated fish, turning once to brown other side.
   Remove from oil with tip of sharp knife. Drain on
   paper towel.  Keep warm on cookie sheet in 300 degree
   F oven till all pieces have been fried.
   
   SHRIMP-DEEP FRIED: Substitute large or jumbo shrimp
   preferably frozen, cooked, ready to serve shrimp, that
   have been completely thawed, following the Lone John
   Sliver recipe exactly, using the shrimp in place of
   the fish triangles.  Be sure to dip the shrimp 1st in
   the beer and then into the self-rising flour before
   coating in prepared batter. Fry as directed for fish
   in above recipe.  1 pound serves 4.
