This was great. It truly was like the Arthur Treacher's I remember from the 70's. One comment I would like to make though is that even though I used 3 pounds of fish I had enough batter left over to coat another 10 pounds. Next time I will use one cup of soada and one cup of bisquick. Lovely fish though and it went particularly well with the Chip Shop Curry Sauce.
Wow.. this was delicious. It's just the taste I've been longing for. I used to LOVE Arthur Treacher's fish... yumm... with the malt vinegar or tartar sauce!... This batter really puffed up when it hit the fryer. I used cod fish fillets and they were really good. I always have canned seltzer in the fridge. Did you know that if you substitute seltzer for some of the liquid in your pancakes or biscuits it makes them lighter and fluffier? Try it.
