      We really enjoyed these. I used cod and they were simple to make and very good. Thanks for sharing. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.

      I used just the fish part of this recipe. Very light batter. I found it seemed to soak up the oil quite a bit. But will use it again. I did this recipe for the Zaar iron chef challenge 2008

      Everyone loved this fish recipe, even the two who don't like fish. Will definitely make again. I didn't try the chips.
