The Best Homemade Batter for Fish, Shrimp and Chicken

Originally posted in 2008 - Reposted for 2017 almost 10 years later because it's still my favorite batter for fried fish, shrimp and chicken.





If you were to ask me what my favorite 'food' is, it might be onions.  However, if you were to ask me what my favorite type of food is, it would be seafood.  It doesn't matter if it's crab, lobster, shrimp, fish, oysters, mussels or anything in between.  Seafood in some form, three times a week would be about perfect for me.  And this fried fish batter?  One of my favorites.  This is a recipe I originally posted back in 2008 but a lot of you might not have been a reader back then.  It is not only so very good, but you can use cod fillets, which are very affordable!

Home Fried Fish

1 c self rising flour
5 t prepared mustard
2 t sugar
2 t salt
1 egg
1 c water
1/2 t onion powder
2 lbs. fresh or frozen/thawed Cod filets or chicken strips, etc.

Mix everything but the fish/chicken.  Heat a container of oil 2-3 inches deep to about 350-400 degree's.  Dip each filet into the batter and quickly place in the hot oil.  Cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes.  Drain on paper towels.
