Helpful tips:

  • Skin the fish fillets, by gripping one end and sliding your knife underneath the flesh - for more guidance, watch this video - the example here is for a salmon side, but the same technique applies for all types of fish, and whole or part fillets
  • Try adding sparkling water or beer to your batter - the bubbles create pockets of air (trapping water droplets in the process) that expand under heat, giving the cooked batter a lighter texture
  • Dust your fish fillets with flour before dipping them in your batter
  • Oil low in saturated fat is best to use because the fish will absorb a small quantity of oil during the cooking process
  • Try not to overcrowd your plan or cooking basket which could lower your oil temperature and mean less crispy batter - best to cook in batches
