"Delicious! My husband was eating them off the plate before I could even finish frying them all. I did add a little more beer because my batter was really thick and a little more marmalade to the dipping sauce (I used orange-cranberry, it was excellent)"- Headkiwi

Krisycoo 2 years agoOh my gosh! I loved this recipe! I will definitely be making this again! Btw- my family doesn't drink beer and sprite is a great substitute!
MsKiJo 3 years agoVERY DELICIOUS!!! However, I substituted beer w/ white Zinfandel wine! Very easy to make!
CaptainSask 4 years agoDelicious, I made a couple substitutions, I used Olive oil rather than vegetable and a thick stout for my beer. It turned out excellent, also if you don't like Dijon Mustard you can substitute regular mustard in the sauce at no expense to flavour.
