Ok's here's how I do it... . In a bowl put some self raising flour and add water and a pinch or 2 of salt. . mix well until a "run off the spoon" consistency is obtained by adding more water or s/r flour as required. . set this aside. . peel your agria potatoes and cut into 1cm x 1cm chips and place on a tea towel to pat dry. . your deep fryer temp should be set at 160c and the chips placed in the basket and cooked until they have some colour. . remove and place in a bowl over serviettes. . fillets of fish / mussels / hotdogs / scallops whatever, dredged in cornflour which has a little salt and white pepper mixed through. . (can use lemon pepper if you want) Remove the basket, dredge your fish, then into the batter and lay away into the deep fryer, two fillets at a time until the batter sets. . remove and set aside on serviettes. . do all the fish fillets. . scoop out any batter dregs immediately. . When you are ready to eat and your plates have had their salads plated. . Place the chips back into the basket and into the fryer at 180-190c until near cooked and crispy. . Now add the fish on top until golden brown turning once. .
dont over cook. . Plate up and sprinkle chicken salt on the chips. . and salt on the fish... Add some tartare sauce or a slice of lemon for the fish and enjoy. .

A beer batter is nice, however, I like a tempura batter as it is very thin and crisp. The water MUST be icy cold.

Using cold water is a must. This keeps the batter from becoming sticky. When you add the flour, whisk quickly just to mix it in evenly. Sticky batter results in oily tempura.

1 egg, beaten
1 cup COLD water
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1 cup flour
Beat the egg and mix with water. Add flour and whisk quickly.

wow fisher that seafood sauce sounds brilliant! Do you think that it should be used sparingly? because we woudn't want to kill the flavour of the seafood eh?
