DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • In a 10" x 3" plastic tub, place the flour, egg, salt, seasoning, milk & melted butter. Blend really well using an immersion blender - or liquidize & pour into the tub. (The tub just makes it easier to apply the batter to the fish.).
  • Rinse your fillets & cut into 5" pieces. Dust each piece with a little flour.
  • Heat your fryer to approximately 180 - 190°C.
  • Dip the fillerts one by one in the batter & coat both sides evenly.
  • When the oil has reached the correct temp, gently lay one fillet at a time onto the top of the oil.
  • Cook until golden brown on both sides - takes me about 4-5 mins, then remove & place on a tray with a wire rack (I use the grill pan) in the oven to stay crisp & hot.
  • Repeat with the remaining fish.
  • Serve with chunky chips, peas (mushy is best!) & lots of salt & vinegar -- .
