Long John Silver’s Batter Fish or Chicken

This is just spectacular. I had real problems with batter (soggy, tasteless, too thin etc), but this was so crisp and light! I too, cut the baking powder down to 2 tbspns, but I used self-raising flour (all I had on hand) and it worked perfectly. I had no problem with it sticking to the thing I was battering (fresh pecorino cheese cubes – it was too wonderful to contemplate!). For such a simple recipe, you’ll get fabulous results – guaranteed!

This recipe was awesome! The fish turned out so great. I used 3/4 c of milk and 3/4 c of water because the batter was too thick at first. I added salt, pepper and garlic powder to the mixture as well. I fried the fish in 1/2 an inch of vegetable oil. Everyone raved about it!

This is a perfect batter. It’s thick, and coats the fish nicely and yet, doesn’t come out overly oily. I do spice the flour with garlic powder, italian seasoning, salt, pepper and vegetable seasoning. I followed suggestions and lowered the baking powder to 2 tbsp. It’s a good batter for pretty much anything going in the fryer. Cheese, onion rings etc. (Try the cheese, it’s phenomenal!)

This was just terrific. I always struggle with frying fish in the typical bread crumb coating, and this solved the dilemma forever! I too reduced the baking powder to 2T, but did not change anything else. The coating is a little messy to apply, but wasn’t a problem. It can be thicker or thinner to your taste. Absolutely delcious! It reminded my family of the old Arthur Treacher’s fried fish (or Long John Silver’s). Thank you!!!
