[ #20446 ]

Dear log,

Made fish and chips tonight. Batter from scratch. It was delightful.

  • I keep wanting to do this, because Alton Brown did fish and chips a few weeks ago, but the effort of doing it all keeps me from doing so. Sigh.

    You are what you think.
      • Alton Brown is one hip dude. He's got a blog of sorts on his web site [].
      • I got the recipe from, but am way to lazy to find the URL again
      • It is VERY EASY AND FAST to make the batter. If you've got a mixing bowl and one good arm, you can do it. You throw a cup of flour, a 1/4 cup of corn starch, 1/2 tablespoon of salt, 1/2 tablespoon of baking power, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 3/4 cup of beer into a bowl and mix. Let this mix set for 5-10 minutes and dredge fish in it. I used about 1
      • It sounds like you used Alton's recipe...long, long sigh. I remember how good those looked. Perhaps I shall have to convince my SO that frying is okay and pick up a large quantity of canola...

        Concerning oil burns, I managed to get myself a rather nasty one recently on both my forearm and mid-torso. It looked like I'd been too close to a shotgun going off until the burns healed.


        You are what you think.
