Nan's Batter for Fish

Nan's Batter for Fish created by Jemoiselle

A friend of mine gave me this recipe. Not sure exactly where it came from. I guess it originated from someone's "nan". Anyway, it is the best batter I have ever used. It is a lot like the take-out batter used here in Newfoundland for fish. Very tasty with the perfect amount of each ingredient without it being too oily or salty. I just fried this in a pan with some oil. I guess you can deep fry them also. This made enough to coat about 1 1/2 -2 lbs of cod.

    The batter was way too thick, so I added a half cup of white wine to thin it. Batter was still really thick but it was batter. Dipped the halibut in it and deep fried in an inch of oil, 2 minutes on each side of 1 1/2" thick, 2" wide and 4" long pieces. The batter ended up tender and really crispy (even after cooling) and the fish like silk. This is my fish batter recipe forever.

    In Place of water, use 1 cup of 7-up and it gives the exact texture of LJS.

    I made this for my Husband, as the meat eater of the family :) He specifically wanted me to thank you so much and mention that "It fried up so crispy and light textured, but substantial and completely stuck to the chicken cutlets we used, made a beautiful breading!" This is truly a keeper for us, thanks for posting! Enjoy the pics, you've earned them <3
