1/1 Photo of Dad's Fish Batter
CHEF GRPA's Note:
My dad got this recipe from somewhere a long, long time ago in the 20's or 30's and passed it on to Mom and she passed it on to me in the 60's. YOU Just multiply the amounts according to how much fish that you have to fry. I tried to post a photo for the recipes but the '"'powers that be''" will not let it be posted on the recipes. So I will not do any post of photos here, no recognition for it.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Sift dry ingredients.
- 2Add water and mix well. whisk until you have a smooth batter, if needed add a bit more water but do not make it too thin. (or use some beer if you like too.my up date1968).
- 3Use to coat fish or chicken filets. (not too thick or thin on the coating).
- 4Cover the fish completely.
- 5Deep fry until a nice golden brown.
- 6SOME TIP's: If you didn't have a deep-fryer to fry the fish in, A shallow fry pan can be use, And add some oil to the pan, and I was all way surprised the batter stayed on the fish. Excellent!
- 7I did some chicken tenders, then some fresh flounder fillets, then some shrimp. It was all incredible! Next time I will make some hush puppies, and it will be just like eating at the restaurant!
- 8This really was an excellent batter. I made it up an hour before I used it as I have heard that this makes batter 'stick' better to whatever you're frying. Anyway, it stuck. Light, crisp and not greasy.
- 9For fun I tried this on onion rings and I took some sweet banana peppers and split them and removed the seeds and battered them and fried to a golden brown, excellent. I think you could batter any thing with this recipe. THANK's DAD !
- 10NOTE: After reading some of the other reviews, they stated the batter was to running. I added a 1/2 cup of corn meal to the batter, also some garlic & onion powder to taste and/or fish seasoning. I also let the fish sit in the batter for 30 minute This made the batter a bit thicker on the fish and made it stick well. My entire family loved this recipe. I am also expected to make this recipe for my neighbor. She buys the fish I cook it. We now have an awesome batter for our fish. WE all Love IT.
