    Sue Lau's Note:

    Great for a fish fry. Mushrooms and other veggies go great too, as well as chicky tenders, and squares of marinated tofu. Experiment and have fun! Makes enough for 1 pound of seafood.

      I live in Alaska so we have wonderful fresh Halibut. I made this batter and added some extra seasonings. It was such a hit that there was nothing left and the fillet was a good 5 pounds. They ate this along with the mushrooms, onion rings, broccoli, and fries that we made. I served the items as they were finished to avoid them getting soggy. Everybody enjoyed this because they were real hot as well. The times when I want to eat with them I cook in smaller portions and if it gets eaten I go back and cook more. I hope this helps any one. Good luck and happy eating...

      This has the exact same flavor and texture as Long John Silver's and that's quite a compliment! I even go so far as to drizzle a little of the batter in the oil to make the "crumbs" you can get there. Let the batter sit for 5 or so minutes after making and it thickens up dramatically and adheres to the meat/onions lots better. I lightly dust my onion rings with flour to help it adhere also. We eat deep-fried foods perhaps 3 or 4 times a year. After finding this recipe, it might be difficult to adhere to that. Thanks so much for posting!

      EXCELLENT light batter! The only thing I did different was to add 2 tsp of Old Bay seasoning to the batter. *which made the batter better* pun intended! I will always use this batter from now on! Oh yes, and I also dredged my onions and shrimp in flour before the batter so that it would adhere better…worked like a charm! Thanks for a really excellent and easy recipe
