In a large bowl, prepare the batter by whisking together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, Real Salt®, and Old Bay Seasoning.
Slowly pour in the beer, whisking continuously until a smooth batter forms. Let the batter rest for at least 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the spicy remoulade sauce. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, dill pickle, capers, parsley, whole grain mustard, Tabasco sauce, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Pat the white fish fillets dry with a paper towel and cut into 2-3 inch pieces.
In a large, heavy-bottomed pot or deep fryer, heat 2-3 inches of coconut oil to 375°F (190°C).
Dip each piece of fish into the batter, allowing any excess to drip off.
Carefully lower the fish into the hot oil and fry for 1-2 minutes each side, or until golden brown and crispy. Fry the fish in batches so as not to overcrowd the pot to an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) to ensure that it's fully cooked.
Remove the fried fish from the oil using a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
Serve the beer-battered fish hot with the spicy remoulade sauce on the side.
For a colorful and fresh addition, serve with a side of crisp green salad or roasted vegetables. A bowl of coleslaw or mashed potatoes would also make a great accompaniment. To add a little extra crunch, consider serving with some crispy french fries or onion rings.
To complete the seaside theme, serve with a cold beer or a glass of crisp white wine. With its satisfying flavors and textures, this dish is sure to impress your friends and family at your next gathering!
