Copycat Fish Batter Recipe Tastes Like Long John Silver's (For Fish or Chicken) by 30Seconds Food
Have you always wanted to make Long John Silver's fried fish at home? Now you can! This copycat Long John Silver's fish batter recipe gives fish – and chicken – that light, crispy outside that we all know and love.
This fish batter is super simple to make. Whisk together all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, salt and water until smooth. Dunk fish fillets or chicken tenders into the batter and put immediately into hot oil. Fry the fish or chicken until cooked through, golden brown and crispy.
The fast food seafood restaurant uses wild-caught Alaskan cod for their famous batter-fried fish. If you can't find cod, this batter would be just as delicious on tilapia, catfish, haddock, snapper or your favorite fish. We think it's time for a fish fry!
