How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, heat the canola oil to 350º. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and Old Bay. Whisk in the beer, adding additional water if needed.

Step 2    

Dust the tilapia with the cornstarch and dredge through the beer batter. Gently place in the oil and fry until golden brown, about five minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel lined baking sheet and season with salt.

Step 3    

Dust capers with cornstarch and fry for two minutes. Transfer to the baking sheet. Serve tilapia and capers with lemon halves.
