This recipe is a twist on the traditional jalapeno popper. These poppers are an inside-out fish spread appetizer - spicy pepper outside with the creamy smoke fish surprise on the inside!
Add oil to fry daddy and set heat to 350 degrees.
Cut fish into small pieces and run through food processor until it turns to a fine texture.
Remove fish from processor and set aside in bowl.
Add onion to food processor and pulse until minced. You will need to stop the process once or twice and move the onion down toward the blade with a rubber spatula. Remove onion when processed and add to fish in bowl.
Add cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire Sauce and lime juice to processor. Mix until all ingredients are fully blended together. Add fish and onion back to processor with these ingredients and process until just blended. Remove all ingredients and place back in bowl.
Cut tops off jalapenos and remove seeds with a small knife by running knife along the inside edge of the pepper.
Whisk 1 C corn flour, cornstarch and 1 C of beer in bowl. Hold the other ½ C of the beer and add later if the batter begins to stiffen up during the process.
Add remaining corn flour to separate bowl.
Push fish spread ingredients into jalapenos.
Using a fork with outer point stuck down inside of popper from top of pepper, roll jalapenos one at a time first through egg batter, then through flour, then through beer batter being careful to not touch the outside through the process as the batter can easily come off the jalapeno skin.
Drop jalapeno in 350-degree oil. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes moving the peppers around a bit through the process.
Once peppers begin to brown, remove and place on paper towel. Peppers will remain hot for at least 5 minutes, so be sure to allow to cool a bit before serving to avoid scalding.
