Sheila's Batter for Clams, Shrimp, Scallops, Onion Rings

Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

It's hard to say how many this serves, because it depends on what your making and how lg. the pieces being covered are, so the servings may be off. You can use this batter for just about anything you want deep fried... Cooking time is per batch that you are frying. This is my cousin Sheila's recipe that she kindly shared with me! Enjoy!

I used this batter on fish, onion rings and jalepeno slices. I had to add extra milk snce it was just to thick at first. It coats very well and stays put. And does not go on to thick . Which is very nice. Nothing worse then a batter that falls off with frying. I just found it a little to chewy if that make sense LOL I think next time I might add beer instead of milk.
