Start heating your oil to 350F – you’ll want at least 2-3″ of oil in your pot or deep fryer.
In a large bowl, combine flours, baking powder, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Add egg and beer, stir well to form a thick batter. Allow batter to sit for 15 minutes or so, to soften the flours.
Gently dredge cod cheeks in corn starch, shaking excess flour back into the bowl.
One piece at a time, dip into batter, allowing excess batter to drip back into bowl for a few seconds, before carefully transferring to heated oil.
Fry for a few minutes on each side, until golden brown and cooked through.
Use a slotted metal spoon to transfer fried cod cheeks to paper towels. Allow oil to come back up to temperature between batches.
Serve hot, with a side of dressing... and maybe some veggies, if you want to feel responsible! :)
