Heat oil in a deep fryer to 185 degrees C. Rinse fish, pat dry and season with salt and pepper.
Combine flour, garlic granules, paprika, 2 teaspoons salt and 2 teaspoons pepper. Stir egg into dry ingredients. Gradually mix in beer until a thin batter is formed. You should be able to see the fish through the batter after it has been dipped.
Dip fish fillets into the batter, then drop one at a time into hot oil. Fry fish, turning once, until both sides are golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper, and serve warm.
