This was great! The batter had a wonderful consistency and the herbs were a great addition with the fish. The only fresh herb I had was parseley so I bulked it up with that for the texture and appearance and used dried herbs for the flavour. I also battered a few chips that I'd par cooked in the microwave and it was wonderful with them as well.
