River Cottage Fish Batter Recipe

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and the folks from River Cottage have put together this recipe video to demonstrate how to make the perfect beer batter for fish and chips.

The River Cottage video shows how to make a fish batter that can be used for any number of different types of fish. In fact, in the video they use the beer batter to make both deep fried squid rings and fried dogfish fillets.

All of which goes to show that once you have the basics down on something like fish batter than you can adapt the recipe in so many ways and never get bored of making it.

As the River Cottage is based in England, this recipe for fish batter is done with British measurements in mind but the concepts are explained as to make it easy to adapt to any cooking culture.
