Best Fish Batter

"A light, crispy batter that turns golden and bubbly. Fantastic for frying fish, calamari rings, prawns, shellfish, pineapple or banana fritters and good old Aussie potato cakes."

ingredients

directions

  • Using a fork, mix the melted butter through the flour and salt.
  • Add the soda water or beer and mix. Don't worry about the lumps of butter. They disappear while frying and make the crispy batter bubbly.
  • To make Aussie potato cakes, take a large potato and cut into thin, large slices.
  • Coat with flour and then dip into the batter before frying.

    Great recipe. Low sodium too, even better. I did omit the melted butter. Thanks so much.

    I love this recipe! Light and crispy and as the other reviewer stated, it is great on shrimp, vegetables, anything fried! I used orange flavor seltzer water and it made my fish even more delish! Just a hint of citrus flavor! My go to recipe! Thank you for sharing this with us!!!

    Made some wonderful Atlantic haddock fish n chips two nights ago, took some time to brown in my oil, which was too new. We simply baked them off at 400, until the desired crispiness was achieved, the fish was perfect and moist inside, and i absolutely love the texture of the batter from the club soda, we can't wait to try this again with beer, and for battering other delectable items!<br/>thank you:)

    Absolutely Gorgeous!!! Never buying from a chippy again. Used this recipe with cod pieces (fillets) and chick goujons. Thanks for recipe, very light and crispy!!!. One tip, Make sure oil is red hot and be very careful when adding battered food to hot oil, aim away from you.
