750g piece Genfish fillet, skin off, bones removed
1/2 cup beer
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Pinch saffron threads, soaked in 1 tablespoon warm water
1/2 cup plain flour
Olive oil, for deep-frying
2 egg whites
Salt flakes, to taste

Romesco Sauce
Romesco is a Spanish sauce made from nuts and red pepper
1 small red onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
6 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 small red chilli, chopped
1 red capsicum, chopped
2 x 2cm pieces fresh lemon skin, pith removed
Salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup blanched almonds, toasted (see notes)
1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted (see notes)
1/3 cup toasted hazelnuts, skinned (see notes)
10 basil leaves, torn
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Instructions 

1. Preheat oven to 220°C
2. Cut fish into strips, cover and set aside
3. Combine beer, oil and saffron. Sift flour into a bowl and gradually whisk in beer mixture until smooth. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes

Make Romesco Sauce
1. place onion, garlic, tomato, chilli, capsicum, lemon skin, salt and half the olive oil in a baking dish, place in oven 20 minutes
2. Turn a couple of times to colour evenly
3. Place roasted vegetable mixture in a food processor with almonds, pine nuts, hazelnuts, basil, vinegar, salt, pepper and remaining oil
4. Blend into a coarse paste and set aside
5. Heat oil in a wok or deep-fryer to 180°C
6. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form and fold into batter
7. Dip strips of fish into batter draining off excess and deep-fry in batches 2-3 minutes, until crisp and well coloured. Drain on paper towel
8. Sprinkle with salt and serve with Romesco Sauce
Notes:
1. Toast almonds and pine nuts in a dry frying pan for a couple of minutes, tossing gently to prevent them burning, or under a grill (but watch them closely)
2. Toast hazelnuts the same way, or in a 200%C oven, until skins are scorched, then wrap in a clean, dry tea towel and rub briskly to remove most of the skins
