Ingredients:  
1 c. tempura flour (a Japanese wheat-flour mixture with cornstarch and egg yolk. You have to hunt for it in the grocery - can use Tempura Fry in a box).
1/2 t. onion powder
1/4 t. cayenne
1/2 t. dry mustard
1/2 t. oregano, rubbed to a powder
1 1/2 t. kosher salt, plus more to season fish
1 cup cold beer
1 lb. firm, meaty fish or shrimp (or vegetables)

Directions:
Directions:
The batter can be made several hours ahead and refrigerated until you are ready to use it. To make the batter, combine the flour, onion powder, cayenne, mustard, oregano and salt in a bowl. Whisk in the beer .. adding more to thin batter, if necessary. It's OK if there are some small lumps. Sprinkle fish with lime juice and salt.

Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Dip a few pieces of fish into the batter, which should be the consistency of pancake batter. Place the fish in the hot oil. Cook a few pieces at a time to avoid crowding the pan and lowering the temperature of the oil, until they float and the batter is golden-brown. Place the fish onto paper towels to drain.
