I did only 2T of the baking soda as the other review suggested. I also dredged the fish in flour first to help the batter stick.
Either fry it up in a non-stick pan or make sure your grease is deep enough to float the fish in to prevent sticking to the pan. 09/03/2007 This is not good It is BITTER I think it is the Baking Powder 1/4 of a cup ??.
I used self rising flour (that I seasoned really well) instead and decreased the baking powder. And like some other reviews, I also increased the liquid because the batter is really thick.
It's thick, and coats the fish nicely and yet, doesn't come out overly oily. I do spice the flour with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and vegetable seasoning.
I followed suggestions and lowered the baking powder to 2 tbsp. It's a good batter for pretty much anything going in the fryer.
Cheese, onion rings etc. Incorrectly using Baking Soda (also known as Bi-carb Soda or Sodium bi-carbonate) in this recipe will give the “tangy” or bitter taste other reviewers have mentioned.
Nothing beats the crispy crunch and delicate flavor of batter -fried fish and seafood. While the simplest coating for fried fish is simple seasoned flour, batters form a protective coating that seals in flavor and has a pleasing texture.
For those of you with a fat phobia, properly deep-fried foods should never be greasy. Fry only in small batches to avoid having too much food drop the temperature of the oil too far.
Any darker and you risk burning the batter and turning it bitter. Drain the cooked fish or seafood on paper towels to soak up that last little of unwanted calories.
The simplest of all batters, this easy mix is best suited to thin fish fillets with a delicate flavor, like sole or Pollock. Don't let this batter sit too long after you make it, or it will lose its leavening punch.
Add 3/4 cup flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a large bowl. Beaten egg whites give this batter its leavening power as well as its structural integrity.
It forms fluffy, tender pouches around the fish or seafood. Just before you are ready to deep fry, beat 3 egg whites with a pinch of cream of tartar until they form medium peaks.
This batter yields a complex, breadline flavor and a thick, crunchy crust. Stir 1 teaspoon of active dry yeast into 3/4 cup of warm (110 °F) water.
I've tried numerous recipes and this by far is the cheapest, tastiest and works with everything. DIRECTIONS Mix all dry ingredients, except the extra flour, whisk together.
If there are flour lumps just squish with the back of a spoon. For fish,shrimp, and 'meaty or wet' items I usually towel dry them and dredge them in the additional flour.
Let the excess drip off and when putting any item in the deep fryer -- use tongs.and dip whatever you are deep-frying in the oil for about 10 seconds, then release. This prevents the food from sticking to the bottom of the fryer.
When it comes to fish or something long or big -- I just put the first inch or 2 in and let it bubble for a few seconds so that I know it won't sink to the bottom and stick. Okay, we know we shouldn’t be eating fried food all the time, but sometimes it’s the only thing that will satisfy a craving.
It’s the crunchiest batter that I know how to make,” said Michael Simon as he demoed his Crispy Chicken Breast with Spicy Honey on the Food Network Kitchen app. Even cake four will cook up crunchier than all-purpose flour because it doesn’t have a high gluten level.
Michael blends together cornstarch, baking powder and salt and uses it to coat his chicken before it goes in the wet batter. “Vodka evaporates faster than any other liquid leaving you with that incredible shell-like crust,” says Michael.
Completely cover and coat 8 fish or chicken fillets with the batter. Whether you’ve decided to shift eating habits a few days early or have been following a low-carb lifestyle for a while, you don’t need to say goodbye to sweets.
