Beer Battered Red Emperor with Harissa Mayonnaise

This was my first introduction into the wonderful world of seafood, as I am sure it was for just about everyone in this country. As a kid eating fish and chips on the beach, I thought nothing could ever top this! The only thing that makes eating fish and chips better is using a premium quality fish like coral trout, red emperor or flathead.

I like Pete's recipes and have his books, but olive oil has a lower smoke point than the vegetable oils:

Don't mix the flour too much when you're combining it, or you'll develop the gluten and achieve a less crispy result.

Brilliant, expensive fish at 46/kg but worth it. We used some wasabi instead of harissa. Used James Squires nine tales Amber ale, little heavy for a beer batter, but worked a treat.
