Excellent. We had a good day fishing and I wanted to make it different than our usual way and found this recipe. I'm so glad I did. The crust was very crispy and help together very well during the frying process. I tried it in my deep fat fryer but it stuck to the basket so switched to a regular frying pan. Peanut oil is the key to any fish fry, IMHO. The only thing I did differently is I doubled the recipe for all the fish we had and used 2 cups cornmeal and 1 cup of flour together with the other batter ingredients. The rest stayed the same. thanks so much for a wonderful meal.
