7 Fish Batter Recipes

One of the most common ways to cook delicious fish is to fry it in a pan using breading or batter. Most culinary experts agree that the second option is preferable. Judge for yourself: on the one hand, the batter does not allow fish to come into contact with the oil and absorb excess fat. On the other hand, fish becomes saturated with the taste of batter, and it cooks in its own juice, becoming especially tender and juicy.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
