    For the fried fish: Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.

    In a large bowl, combine the tempura batter mix and beer. While whisking, slowly add water until a pancake-batter consistency is reached.

    Dip the cod in the batter and then toss in the panko to coat. Fry until the fish is golden brown and beginning to float, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

    For the chips: Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.

    Add the pre-soaked potatoes to the deep-fryer and cook for 3 minutes. Remove the fries and allow to rest for 1 minute. Return the fris to the fryer and cook for an additional minute. Drain on paper towels and season with salt.

    Serve the fried fish with the chips.
