    A classic. Our whole family will eat fish this way! I like to serve it with steak-cut french fries.

      The batter itself is a bog-standard batter, The original way us peasants in the UK have had our fish and chips for hundreds of years. Adding egg and beer and sparkling water is a jumped up 70's chef idea. This is the best way and the true way to have it. The only change I would suggest is to use ICE cold water. Add ice cubes to the water, get it real cold. Sounds crazy but hot oil and the freezing batter puffs it up even more. Also if you are doing an oriental meal and looking for a great starter. Add a teaspoon of Chinese 5 spice and try it with prawns...mmmm

      Awesome batter! Amazing that such a simple recipe can work so good! After trying many times to make a batter that stays crispy, and doesn't fall off the fish, I finally found it... Thanks Alot!

      This is a great recipe for a crispy batter, so good for what seems to be so few ingredients! I did add about a 1/4 cup more water, as it was a little to thick for my preference. I'll definitely be using this recipe again!
