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
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.
