Memphis Cornmeal Battered Cod

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons sugar
1 (16-ounce) ice cold beer
2 tablespoon honey
Peanut oil
6 (6-ounce) cod fillets
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Tartar Sauce, recipe follows
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
2 tablespoons hot pepper relish, jarred
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley leaves
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a large bowl, add flour, cornmeal, cayenne and sugar and mix together. Whisk in cold beer and honey until well incorporated and free of lumps. Preheat deep-fryer to 375 degrees F. with peanut oil. Season cod with salt and pepper and dredge in batter. Allow excess batter to drip off and place gently into the deep-fryer. Fry for 6 to 8 minutes until golden, crisp and delicious. Drain on paper towels. Place cod on a large serving platter or individual places and serve with Tartar Sauce. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together.
