    I wanted to love this batter, but it was so thick, it was like thick paste. I could barely batter my cod and onion rings. As is, I can only give the recipe 3 stars. I will try it again and leave out the cornstarch next time

    Delicous! A nice thick batter that was very easy to handle and well suited to decent sized fillets and gave a perfect amount of cooking time for the fish without ending up burnt. I deep fried in a wok (don't have a deep fryer) and served along with a salad and a few lemon wedges.

    This was a great batter. I used 1 lb of tilapia and still had extra batter to use. It came out nice and thick and coated the fish very well. I did have a small problem as another reviewer, that when putting the fish in the fryer right away it would sink and stick to the basket. After I noticed it was doing that, I just slowly added them in to let it cook a little first so it wouldnt sink down to the fryer basket immediately. I also did use double the amount of beer to get the right consistency so that it wasnt too thick. Great recipe, I will use again! Thanks!
