This recipe is the very best I have ever tried, and I've tried hundreds. I also like how easy it is to make, no messing around cooling the batter in the fridge for hours. It literally took just minutes to make. I'm a vegetarian so I used the batter to make potato scallops but i'm sure it would work equally well for onion rings and other vegetables.
Amazing batter...used fresh caught red fish...best ever had. We need a better high temp fryer for chips, made better ones in oven. Overall fish and tarter sauce 4+... looking forward to making again with new, better fryer. Thank you.
I just finished making this with frozen wild halibut from costco. It was phenomenal; it was my first attempt at f&c and it'll be my only recipe. I did add some Lawry's seasoning and lemon juice (as suggested) to batter; shiner bock was the beer i had on hand...perfect. I'm so excited to have something i can make for my English friends!
i´ve been living in denmark for many years now and i miss good old fish and chips, this is one of the best batter recipes i´ve ever made thanks
EXCELLENT recipe! I add the beer slowly as I don't find myself using the whole cup. Also, I make sure I use 30% rice flour to make sure my batter stays crispy even if it sits for a little while. Regardless of which way you go, the end product is excellent and is crispy and compliments the fish perfectly. Good job!
I was looking for a fish batter recipe that I could make for my wife; something that would remind her of her trips to Scotland to see family. She said this was great and I have to make it for her mother. Love how crispy the coat is, the baking soda and beer make it light and flavorful! Great recipe!
We acquired 20 pounds of fresh caught cod and, with trepidation, I decided to fry some of it, since we had eaten it every other way imaginable and were pretty over cod for the moment. Although an expert cook, I have never fried anything. This recipe is EXCELLENT! Easy, tasty, the fish was perfect, nice light, crispy batter. We used Guinness stout for the beer. I can't thank you enough for one of the best recipes I have tried this year!!!
Lovely light and crisp batter, thank you for sharing.
I came across this recipe after my husband
Had long been searching for a traditional London fish and chips recipe. Full fat and all! Followed instructions exactly -- including the British beer. Extremely pleased with this and will make again. Easy delicious comfort food with a salute to England.
