In a medium-size bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and pepper. Stir in the milk and egg; stir until the mixture is smooth. Let stand for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oil in a large pot to 365 °F.
Dredge the fish in the batter, one piece at a time, and place them in the hot oil. Fry until the fish is golden brown. If necessary, increase the heat to maintain the 365 °F. Drain well on paper towels.
