12    ounces pale ale beer

1 ¼    cups all-purpose flour

In a medium size bowl, add beer and mix in the flour. The mixture will foam. Next, stir in salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, and baking powder. Mixture will thicken as it stands. Make batter at least 1 hour before using. Clean fish fillets and wipe dry as possible. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Dip each fillet in batter, until well coated. Fry the fillets in deep fat heated to 350° F until golden brown, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and serve immediately with fresh lemon wedge and a dollop tartar sauce.
