      The batter stuck to the frying basket during cooking and so the fish fell apart as I tried to remove it. I followed the recipe to a "T". Thumbs down on this one - sorry.

      I used this on some Trevally fillets and it was golden and wonderfully crisp and light. I cooked in an electric frypan filled with enough oil to half cover the fillets and had enough room for four. I turned them at the half way mark, removed with a spatula and dried on paper towel as you suggested. Beer batter is really light so you need to do it this way or another way I like is to drop in a wok and remove with a Chinese scoop, beer batter doesn't play well with baskets.

      If you hold the fish in the oil by one end for a few seconds before you let it go, it starts to puff up and helps prevent sticking, which is usually worse with a basket.
