    Piper Lee's Note:

    This batter is awesome for deep frying anything! Onion rings, mushrooms, zucchini spears, fish, chicken, shrimp, etc. It is light and thin so you can actually still taste the food you deep fried. This recipe doesn't seem like it would make a lot but it's so thin that it really covers a lot of food.

      This did the trick & is extremely easy to make. I just made this batter to fry some zucchini & i love it. So light and crispy and not over-powering the natural taste of the zucchini (not oily). I did not end up using the 1Tblsp egg... only cuz i didn't want the rest of it (the egg) to go to waste.. I also used extra-virgin olive oil instead of veg (personal pref.) but still its turned out perfect. Excellent for appetizers! I am now wanting to try the left-overs on something else. I have already cooked some fish for dinner, but i can see how great this would be as a fish batter as well. Will also try this to fry cauliflower and onion. Just a note: I didn't really have to measure everything perfectly, just make it to the consistency you need it, for example for a thicker fish batter use less water, for light and crispy veg batter, add more water to make a smoother texture. Thanks very much for this light, refreshing batter recipe!
