Crispy Fried Fish or Shrimp

It's hard to find good crispy fried fish around here, so now you can make your own right at home, tasty good and you know what's in it, all good things
We like fish, and catfish is high on that list, so this recipe makes a really tasty crisp fish or shrimp

For the Fish or Shrimp Fry:
Vegetable or canola oil, for frying
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 rounded tablespoon (a palmful) Old Bay seasoning
1 bottle Dos Equis beer or other lager
4 to 6 portions of 6- to 8-ounce thick pieces of cod or other sustainable white fish or 20 to 24 large shrimp or prawns, tails-on, shelled and deveined
1 lemon, cut into wedges

For the Dill-icious Tartar Sauce:
1 egg yolk
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 rounded teaspoon Dijon mustard
About 2/3 cup grapeseed oil
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
3 tablespoons relish

For the Fish or Shrimp Fry: In a deep pot, heat a few inches of oil to 350-365°F. Preheat oven to 275°F.   Whisk up flour, Old bay and beer. Coat the fish or shrimp in batter, let excess drip off then fry fish filets 1-2 pieces at a time or shrimp 5-6 at a time. Cook fish about 5 minutes; shrimp 2-3. Once golden and crispy, remove to a wire rack set on a baking sheet and season with salt.  Keep fried fish warm in oven while you fry up remaining pieces. Serve fish with lemon wedges and tartar sauce

For the Dill-icious Tartar Sauce: Whisk up egg yolk, lemon and Dijon then stream in oil while continuing to whisk. Season dressing with salt; stir in dill and relish. Chill before serving.
