Recipe by cervantesbrandi

I was spending time with my sister in law this weekend so that I could learn more recipes from Central America (she is from El Salvador) She showed me a dry fish recipe that was dipped in this batter, the fish was lightly fried, and then cooked in salsa. The egg batter would be perfect for mushrooms, zucchini, as well as chile rellenos.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 eggs (whites and yellows separated)
  • 3 tablespoons flour


  1. Place your egg whites in a large bowl and mix on high with a hand mixer for 15 minutes until triple the size and the consistency is pure fluff.
  2. Add the yellow parts of the eggs into the whites and beat with a hand mixer on high for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the flour and continue mixing on high for another 2 minutes.
  4. Note: Use the batter as soon as possible as it kind of acts like pancake batter and will not rise to the occasion if left untouched.
