  1. Step 1

    In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, beer, mustard, Tabasco, and half of the salt and peppers.
  2. Step 2

    Put the all-purpose flour in a plate or wide, shallow bowl.
  3. Step 3

    In another bowl, combine the remaining salt and black pepper with cayenne pepper, and the corn flour; stir to blend thoroughly.
  4. Step 4

    Cut fish fillets into bite-sized chunks or nuggets. Drop several chunks in the all-purpose flour and then put them in the egg mixture to coat.
  5. Step 5

    Drop the fish into the corn flour mixture, turning to coat thoroughly. 
  6. Step 6

    Place the coated fish on a rack to dry slightly.
  7. Step 7

    Preheat oil in deep fryer to about 370 F.
  8. Step 8

    Working in small batches, fry the fish nuggets until they are golden brown and float to the surface, about 3 to 5 minutes. Take care not to overcook.
  9. Step 9

    With a slotted metal spoon, remove the fish nuggets to paper towels to drain. Pat them gently with paper towels to soak up any excess oil.
