My Favorite Fish Fry Batter

I have experimented a bit with different batters for frying fish and we like this one the best. So far.
Very light & delicious. Simple.

1 1/4 cups ALL PUPOSE FLOUR
Pinch SALT
2 EGGS, separated
8oz. BEER
1 Tblsp. OIL

Sift FLOUR and SALT into a Bowl.
Add EGG YOLKS, BEER & OIL.
Beat until smooth and let stand for about 30 minutes.

Beat EGG WHITES until STIFF & GENTLY FOLD into BATTER.


Dip FISH in batter and allow excess batter to Drain Off before Frying.

Oh great this sounds perfect Chef Maloney.

I usually buy a premix packet of beer batter from the shop as I have never had much luck in making my own.

Will be trying this one out for sure.
