"Not my favorite. Needed more seasoning, tasted like fried flour. Dip was good,didn't have horseradish, that probably would have made the difference. Will probably cut back on the amount of mayo next time, it kind of overpowered the dip. But I will make the dip again. I'll look for a new recipe for the batter, or make some adjustments."
