We really enjoyed this. I did dip the fish in flour before dipping in batter. I only made the fish portion of this recipe with "Hush Puppies Justin Wilson Style". I did add some garlic powder, chili powder and freshly ground black pepper to the batter. I will be using this recipe again. Thank you!

This recipe is so easy to make and sooooo good.<br/>Sometimes I add Indian spices to the flour.

This was wonderful! I think we under cooked the first batch, but every batch after that was fab! The batter was thick crispy and perfect!

i usually make a beer batter for my fish, but i didnt have any beer on hand so i decided to try this recipe. i was a little skeptical but i was so pleased at the out come of this. it produced a perfect, crisp, but oh so light crust. absoloutly perfect! everyone raved about it. this is now the only batter i will use when making fish and chips. i used it with flounder by the way, and i did dredge the fish in flour before dipping in the batter.

Terrific! This batter was light and crispy, just the way we love it. I made the mistake on the first batch of frying the fish in the basket of a deep fat fryer (I know you said not to.) Although the fish was good, the batter stuck to the basket so it looked like scrambled fish by the time I pried it loose, lol. My grandson thought that it was much better than Ivar's - which is a huge complement around here. Thanks Patrish for a great meal. Made for All You Can Cook Buffet tag.

Great recipe and so easy to make! I followed another poster's suggestion about dusting the fish with flour before dipping in the batter and it worked great. Thanks!

We liked the lightness of this batter, but no matter how well I dried the fish pieces, it would just slide off. I'll use the batter again, but might dust the fish with corn starch. I used the traditional double fry for the potatoes.

My family loves this fish recipe! Like others have said, it's a must to dry, dry, dry the fish before dipping in the batter.
