Fish Fry Batter Recipe

So in my last post which was a quest to make a tempura batter, I discovered a fish fry batter recipe for fish and chips dinner. It's simple ingredients and so easy to make. When you begin to fry the fish, take one small piece of fish and test it for frying temperature and for any additional salt or cayenne. Remember when you cook, you are not limited by the recipe as in baking. Since we are trying to cut down on sodium, the amount in this recipe may not be enough for you.
However, it's the fish that you want to shine, so you should season the fish on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Vegetable or Canola Oil for frying
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 cup seltzer
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
In one bowl mix all of the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg, seltzer and 1 tbsp. oil.
Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. The batter should be well incorporated, but it's okay if it is a bit lumpy.

Allow the batter to rest for at least 10 minutes.

Deep fry at 375 degrees until the coating is crispy and the fish is cooked through. Add your fish to the batter and carefully place in the oil. It only takes minutes per side.
