Long John Silver's Fish Batter

Total Time

Mom got this recipe from somewhere a long time ago and passed it on to me. Just multiply the amounts according to how much fish that you have to fry.


  1. Sift dry ingredients.
  2. Add water and mix well.
  3. Use to coat fish or chicken filets.
  4. Cover the fish completely.
  5. Deep fry until a nice golden brown.

This batter was excellent! A must-try the next time you want something fried with a very crisp, not too thick coating. Excellent taste as well. I 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! Thanks for posting. :)

I made this batter for fish, turned out really good, nice and crunchy. I did not deep fry the fish, I shallow fried and was surprised the batter stayed on the fish. Excellent!!

I thought the batter was terrific. I used it on scallops, chiken and Fish. They all turned out excellent. My family really enjoyed it.
