Long John Silver's Fish Batter #1
2 1/2 lbs. fish fillets
1/2 cup beer
1/2 cup self rising flour
2/3 cup beer
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup Bisquick®
1/2 cup self-rising flour
For the batter, in a 1 1/2 quart bowl, whip 2/3 cup beer, lemon juice, egg, Bisquick, and 1/2 cup self rising flour together till smooth. Let stand ten minutes at room temp before using.
In one small bowl put 1/2 cup beer and into another bowl place 1/2 cup flour. Have a cookie sheet on hand. Cover half of it with paper towel for draining fried foods, leave the other half plain for drying coated fish before dipping in batter.
Allow 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 lbs. of fish for 4 people. Cut each in half to resemble triangles. First dip one piece at a time, in beer, allow excess to drip off then coat lightly in flour. Place floured pieces on cookie sheet to dry 2 to 3 minutes. Then pierce with a fork and dip into batter, coat evenly but lightly.
Fry a few pieces at a time in 385 to 400 degree oil, allow 3 or 4 minutes per side of each fish, turning once to brown other side, drain on paper towels. Can be kept warm in a 300 degree oven.
