I've made "non beer" battered fish before and it's been good and not so good. The last time I made it, it came out way too crunchy and I LOVE crunchy foods. This time I'm going to use the recipe for The Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries. I've also learned to halve the recipe. The complete recipe makes enough for like 4-6 people.I will post the ingredients and let's see what happens.
I have 3 thin pieces of yellowfin sole1 cup all-purpose flour (Gluten free All Purpose flour) (I used a 1/2 cup of flour)1 teaspoon garlic salt1 teaspoon onion salt1 teaspoon salt (Kosher Salt)1 teaspoon paprika1/2 cup water, or as needed (maybe because it was GF flour I used 3/4 cup)1 cup vegetable oil for frying (Olive Oil/Sunflower Oil)Season to taste.
(It was almost too salty, I suggest you season the flour, do pinches of salt and taste it before you batter the fish)
I guess you can say I had a huge soft fish taco/burrito type situation. The batter is so simple - GF Flour, seasonings and water. (I used the clean water setting on my Kangen water machine. I decided not to use the alkaline water, sometimes it changes the consistency of batter.) Measuring never really works with these recipes (for me). Mix the two ingredients and seasonings until you get a loose pancake batter. I fried the fish for 1-2 minutes on each side ... perfect
