Fish and Chips

"This is my favorite fish and chips recipe. The fish is extra crunchy! For an extra-special abundant seafood dinner, serve this with my recipe #211611 and my recipe #211428, with coleslaw. You'll love this meal! It's easy to prepare and your guests will think you're a professional chef! Try it! Important Note: Use a deep fryer. It is too dangerous to use even a deep skillet!"

    Very good; I will make this again and again. I love the fact that it's so easy to remember! I sprinkled the fish with a little Old Bay and salt before battering. I fried a lb. of fish and had plenty of batter left--I think this recipe would probably be enough for 2 lbs. of fish. Thanks Greg in San Diego!

    If you are looking for a nice SUPER light batter this is perfect! I used ice cold light beer, tilapia, and added some more salt. So very tasty and a quick dinner!

    This is the best batter recipe I have ever tried. We use Icelandic haddock!

    This was very simple and very good. I loved how the batter held up when frying my cod. Thanks for sharing Greg in San Diego. Made for Cooking Tag Mania.

    Great batter! I made 4 mahi mahi fillets and had enough left to make onion rings.

    I liked this recipe. Thought it was just perfect for 2 people. Iused club soda instead of beer and still worked out well. Reminded me of Captain D's fish. Just one adjustment might have helped. Iwish the recipe told how long to cook the fish instead of just til golden brown.
