Recipe by Sue Lau
Great for a fish fry. Mushrooms and other veggies go great too, as well as chicky tenders, and squares of marinated tofu. Experiment and have fun! Makes enough for 1 pound of seafood.

I live in Alaska so we have wonderful fresh Halibut. I made this batter and added some extra seasonings. It was such a hit that there was nothing left and the fillet was a good 5 pounds. They ate this along with the mushrooms, onion rings, broccoli, and fries that we made. I served the items as they were finished to avoid them getting soggy. Everybody enjoyed this because they were real hot as well. The times when I want to eat with them I cook in smaller portions and if it gets eaten I go back and cook more. I hope this helps any one. Good luck and happy eating...
