• 1 lb. fish (any type white fish)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (sometimes I substitute with beer)
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  1. Heat fat or oil to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut fish into serving size pieces.
  3. Sift flour, salt and baking powder together and roll fish in mixture.
  4. Beat eggs lightly and stir in milk and oil. Add the flour mixture that is left over from coating the fish pieces and stir until smooth.
  5. Dip fish pieces in this batter and cook one or two pieces at a time in hot fat. Cook until dark golden brown and drain on paper towelling.
This is the way I often batter fish. If I have left over batter I will add Splenda or sugar to it, flour enough to make it thicker so that you can spoon out a fairly solid bit, another 2 tsp. of baking powder and either raisins or some chopped up apples. Then I deep fry and make fritters. These are sprinkled with powdered sugar. Waste not want not they say.
