    How do ya like 'em?

    I don't care for heavy batter. Too much greasyness (sp) involved.
    Just rolling in a flour/corn mix and a dip in hot oil. I will admit I like tartar sauce, but I enjoy malt vinigar as well.

    Chime in please. :)

    Don't like heavy batter either, for the same reason. I use malt vinegar when they have it. Not all places do.

    I go out to eat, just to try the fish and chips, wherever we go.

    I know some may feel it is sacrilegious, but one of the best places to get.......fish, is the Texas Roadhouse. :D

    I'll chime in buddy. I don't like alot of batter either. I like a thin batter, extra crispy and well spiced, and then you had to say it Bob,,, MALT VINEGAR, mmmm. I like them with a bottomless Pepsi-Cola. Dang, see what you've done Bob? Now I have a hankering for them. :)

    make up a basic beer batter minus the beer and use lemon juice instead

    and make a batch of normal lighht batter , a quick swim in the plain and 45 seconds in the fryer drain well then into the lemon batter

    2 min's max and your done

    great way to knock down some shark

    big chunks of meat , no bones..

    My favorite way is to mix three parts plain flour and one part plain yellow corn meal in a bowl. Wash fish, sprinkle lightly with my own seasoning ( or use your own).

    Then drop into the deep fryer ( 375 deg temp)
    and cook fish to 140 deg internal temp.

    A simple Tarter Sauce: 1 cup mayo

    3 tsp Sweet Salad Cubes Pickles

    1tsp Lemon Juice

    pinch Cream of Tarter

    Mix well and chill before serving.
    Enjoy

    Panko is excellent, Beth. Try it, you'll never go back. Naturally REAL crispy :)

    Lightly covered with panko, deep fried with seafood seasoning or seasoned salt, love tartar sauce. Cold beer, or two.

    EDIT: Panko...Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb traditionally used as a coating for deep-fried foods such as tonkatsu. The biggest difference between panko and standard breadcrumbs is that panko is made from bread without crusts, says Pam Becker, media representative for Progresso, which makes both types.

    Panko’s crustless bread is coarsely ground into airy, large flakes that give fried foods a light, crunchy coating. The flakes tend to stay crispier longer than standard breadcrumbs
