Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

The secret here is to use soybean oil and the flour/dry mustard mix to achieve this wonderful crispy flavor.

I read the first review, and I was sold! Not having self-rising flour, I mixed my own. Thought I had dry mustard, but didn't, so I used tumeric (I had maybe a 1/4 c. I don't know since I did not measure, but it was definitely more than a tablespoon or two). I used tonic water instead of plain water. This was the best batter I have made. The whole family loved it! Even my my hubby who really doesn't care for fish! Thank you!
