Oh my, these are so good! And, yes, they ROCK with my tartar sauce. I made them exactly as the recipe is written and we (3 people) ate the whole batch. This is great football-watching food! Thanks chia, this is definitely a keeper.

these fritters were delicious. I used only shrimp as I couldn't find scallops here and all ale as, again, there was no clamato to be found - I didn't think the recipe suffered at all! Delicious and everyone loved the crunchy, savoury/sweet fritters (sweetness provided by lots of yummy shrimp).

These turned out GREAT - the only problem I had was trying to pick them up out of the frying pan using tongs; I dropped the fritter on accident and burned the you-know-what out of my right hand. So BE CAREFUL!! The photo is mine; I am showing these served with Hey Jude's Tartar Sauce (recipe 65769) and Evelyn'/Athens' Papaya Salsa (recipe 232592).
