Easy to make with a good result but needs some spices added for more flavor.

Good but something missing. Might do with cayenne pepper next time for more flavorsomeness since it was missing some of that.

Awesome batter recipe! Came out golden and crispy. Ill add a bit more water next time for a thinner coating though.

I 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.

came out golden and perfect. used with pollock and pan fried with vegetable oil. i was extremely impressed with this batter. added crushed red pepper and garlic to the dry ingredients to give it more flavor.

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