Lemon-Batter Fish
Submitted by:
Makes: 5 servings adjust
The batter keeps the fish moist and tender. This is my family's favorite battered fish.



  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 12 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 34 teaspoon Salt
  • 12 teaspoon Sugar

Step 1

In a shallow bowl, combine 1 cup of flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Set aside.


  • 1 large Egg, beaten
  • 23 cup Water
  • 13 cup Lemon Juice, in addition to the first 1/3 cup

Step 2

In another bowl, combine egg, water, and 1/3 cup lemon juice. Add to the flour/soda mixture and blend into a smooth batter.


  • 13 cup Lemon Juice
  • 12 cup All-Purpose Flour, in addition to the first cup
  • 2 pounds White Fish, cut fillets into strips

Step 3

In separate shallow bowls, place the remaining 1/3 cup lemon juice and remaining 1/2 cup flour. Dip the fish fillets in the lemon juice, then the flour, and coat with the batter.


  • Oil, for frying

Step 4

Heat 1 inch of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drop a bit of the batter into the oil. If it immediately rises about half way up, and then all the way to the top after a few more seconds, the oil is hot enough. Fry the battered fish, a few at a time, for 2-3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.


  • 1 Lemon, cut into wedges

Step 5

Garnish with lemon if desired.
