Just 3 ingredients, great for fish, mushrooms, onion rings etc. You can spice it up if you want, we sometimes add bay seasoning when frying fish.
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Dip food into batter and fry as desired.
I made this today to batter some shrimp I had to use up. I did not have any problems what-so-ever. The batter stuck to the shrimp and I did not have any problems with splattering. Maybe the other reviewer had the oil too hot and/or water drops on fish? I do not know but it was great and I will use again. Thank you!
This works very well. I had to experiment to get it right. You can add spices--salt, pepper, paprika, whatever--directly to the batter. I suggest frying small spoonfuls of batter first and taste-testing them to get the mixture right. When panfrying, medium heat seems to work best. Also, make sure you put enough oil in the pan so that the fish--or whatever you're cooking--floats off the bottom. Otherwise it might burn.
After years of 'trying', I just thought I would check quickly online and found this recipe - used it for my sweet&sour chicken tonight and have joined this site as a result. The consistency was perfect and it fried in that golden dry way - I am really happy and agree with Looneytunesfan. Its easy to remember but have saved it anyway - so 'thanks' Dawnab!
