    Not-2-Sweet's Note:

    I had great reviews with my other fish recipe Beer Battered Fish (For Fish N'chips). But I'm always striving to improve. I did some experimenting, and this fish batter is great! Serve it with Just Too Easy Tartar Sauce, fries and coleslaw. Or make it into a fish sandwich with tartar sauce and lettuce on a bun. Either way, it's delish!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 lbs cod (fresh or frozen and thawed)
    • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
    • 1/2 cup cornstarch, divided
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 16 ounces club soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt (plus seasoning of your choice..Old Bay, Lemon Pepper etc)
    • oil (for frying)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix together 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup cornstarch, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Stir in enough club soda to make a batter about the consistency of thin pancake batter. You don't want it too thick, just thick enough to nicely coat a spoon.
    3. 3
      Season the batter to taste if desired with seasoning of your choice. I suggest Old Bay, Lemon Pepper seasoning, or seasoned salt. set aside.
    4. 4
      In another bowl, mix together remaining 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup cornstarch.
    5. 5
      Heat oil in a deep pan to 375°F Use a candy thermometer if you need to. Oil in pan should be about 3" to 4" deep.
    6. 6
      Cut fish into portion sizes and remove any pin bones, and pat dry.
    7. 7
      Dredge the fish in the dry flour/cornstarch mixture. Shake off any excess.This allows the batter to stick to the fish.
    8. 8
      Dip dredged fish into batter allowing any excess to drip off before carefully adding the fish to the hot oil.
    9. 9
      Cook the fish one or two pieces at a time until golden brown.
    10. 10
      Drain on paper towels or better yet, on a cake cooling rack set up over paper towels.
    11. 11
      Serve while hot.

      This was the first time we tried frying fish in batter at home and this turned out really good. Super easy. We heated the oil on a four or five on the stove, so not sure if it go to 375, but it worked well. Only thing we didn't do was add seasoning as the recipe calls for and we should've -- something to note for next time.
