"Great batter. I used Old Bay seasoning. My family loves fish fries and this recipe is a hit!"
"Use any kind of fish. I have used haddock and cod. Wonderful. !"
"Can't wait to try this. Does any fish work well? (I am a catfish lover). Please advise. Thank you, absolutely LOVE your recipes."
"Excellent! Very crispy and tasty batter! The fish was better than any we've ever made at home. My husband is a picky eater and he not only cleaned his plate but went back for seconds! The only change I made to the recipe was to use cajun seasoning as I could not find creole. I crushed the saltine crackers in my blender to make them extra fine. Will absolutely make this again!"
"Very good batter. Used real beer because I don't believe nonalcoholic beer is allowed in our home. If you put the prepared fish in the freezer 15-20 min then directly into the hot oil, the batter won't fall off the fish during frying."
