We all loved it! 5-stars plus! I doubled the batter and added everything but the green chilies. It was enough for 8 tilapia filets and a decent batch of onion rings. The fish disappeared. The onion rings were a bigger hit. I bought a sweet onion, and my daughter and her friend were practically fighting over them! (ran out of batter, otherwise I would have made more) I'll definitely use this again - especially when Vidalia onions hit Wisconsin. Very easy and very good. Thanks!

Awesome. I used all the spices listed, omitted the chilies. This batter was enough for one medium onion and 2 cod fillets. The onion rings and fish fingers were excellent. It was easy and fast once the batter was ready. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Great! I didn't use the spices, but I did use the beer, and I used this to fry whitefish filets and onion rings. They turned out perfect! I let it set as recommended, it got kinda puffy and light. We really liked this batter, I will make it again!

This is an excellant batter for fried food, I will be using this one again for sure. I made it exactly as specified, only I did double it. I fried some zucchini, some mushrooms, and had a little batter left, so I tossed in some sliced onions too. This was really good stuff, the coating was very light, and just enough kick to make it interesting. Thanks for a great recipe!

I liked this a lot. I don't drink beer because I don't care for the taste but in this it was great. I only used one green chili and it was the perfect amount of spice for me. The batter coated well too. This recipe is a keeper.

I made this today and although it coated the fish great and it turned out puffy and very light. I found that I didnt care for the taste. I think it was the beer in it.

Great batter for frying! I used this to fry mushrooms...yummy! I omitted the chilies and used non=alcholic beer. I can't wait to try this on onion rings. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
