"I've done it many times. It's a success. But, everyone who does it should adjust the batter's ingredients because, as example, the quality of the four changes the consistence of the whole thing. Also it's necessary a lot of very hot oil."- LuizLima

NazfiraAnriz 1 year agoI like this batter that my fried fish fillet turns out very crispy. I don't weigh the flour though. I use 1/2 cup flour to 3/4 cup water. Add chilli and curry powder too. Very delicious.

cliverobbo 1 year agoYou can add a bit more water which will create a thinner coating. The best batter recipe I've found so far. Fantastic!

ApronedAngel 2 years agoHaving a sudden desire for one of the staples from my root origin, fish and chips of Yorkshire (UK), I found this recipe last night and popped on the apron! One hour later I was serving crispy battered fish with sweet potato mash. My fellow diners loved the crisp lemon-peppered fish batter and hot white flaked fish, which to my surprise I agree this was a very tasty dish indeed (as an amateur chef, the serving phase is the real 'proof of the pudding'!) Some addition points on the recipe: 1. I used 500 gr / 17.6 oz of haddock fish fillets (labelled as églefin (FR) or schelvis (NL) in Belgium). This batter recipe coated the fillets very well, with enough left over to coat another 250 - 350 gr of fish fillets, in my opinion! 2. I added lemon pepper instead of salt and pepper 3. I used culinary white wine vinegar 4. I sieved the plain flour (Bio flour) first 5. I used a deep wok to shallow fry the battered fish in about 1.5cm / 0.6 ' depth of hot oil (pre-blend of 4 oils: rapeseed, linseed, olive and wheat germ oil) 6. I turned the fish several times in the wok to keep the fish batter consistently crisp! Be careful of the hot oil! It's good to buy responsibly and check the international fish stocks from time to time. Haddock is OK* for now, but it could change. *thefishsite.com/articles/893/haddock-stocks-in-the-north-sea I will use this recipe again next week, with a view to start modifying it with other ingredients, including Belgian beers (which I highly recommend for cooking!) Thanks again to the authors and editors for posting this recipe.
