Put inside of your tortilla press (lined with plastic wrap). Press each tortilla, cooking after they are pressed. Cook on the gridle for 3-4 minutes, flipping once. Keep wraped in a towel to stay warm.

- In a skillet, over medium-low heat, add 1/2 inch of vegetable oil. Heat the oil to 350F.
- Dip each piece of fish into the beer batter to coat both sides. Allow excess batter to drip off. Fry the fish in the hot oil until golden brown, 2-3 minutes/side. Transfer to plate lined with paper towels to drain.
