too much bother, equal parts flour and beer makes a wonderful crispy light batter. one cup beer one cup flour, do not add anything else.


When batter or breading anything, fish or chicken, before frying it HAS to be cooled to make coating stick, otherwise batter falls off in the pan. Refrigerate for at least an hour before frying up, Overnight even.

I followed the recipe exactly and what resulted was a liquidy batter that did not stick to the fish. very disappointing and needless to say, my fish looked nothing like the picture.
