Although not every fish batter recipe uses milk, the following recipe gives a wonderfully light, crisp result. This recipe makes enough for about two pounds of fish so you can halve it if you are not cooking that much. Use cod, tilapia, hake, haddock, or any other tasty whitefish. Dip the fish filets into the milk batter, then let any excess drip off and deep-fry the fish until it is golden and crunchy.

Fish and chips is a classic British recipe and if you want to recreate that, then make some thick-cut fries, and serve the fish and chips with onion rings or peas. Coleslaw is another side dish option, or you could go with corn on the cob or even potato salad instead of the fries.

A lot of people have their own favorite fish batter recipe, perhaps one that has been passed down the generations, which their mother and grandmother swore by, but this recipe is also very good and if you are looking for something a bit different you might like to give it a try. Fried fish always makes great comfort food and you could even try this with seafood or chicken, because it is a multipurpose batter.

Adding milk to a fish batter recipe is not something which every home cook does, although it does give the batter a great flavor and texture. Beer batter is another one which might sound strange but works really well, because you do not taste the beer in the finished batter but the bubbles in it make the batter very light. Use fish chunks like in the photo, or larger fish filets if you prefer. Deep-frying transforms this creamy liquid to a golden, crunchy crust, which envelops your fish perfectly, to keep it soft, moist, and delicious inside.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
