Food Network's Crispy Crunchy Fish and Chips and AllRecipes.com's Unbelievable Fish Batter are two light and crispy fish batter recipes. The first recipe includes a potato chip and tartar sauce recipe, while the second recipe just includes the batter recipe.
For the Food Network recipe, place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice about 3 russet potatoes into 1/4-inch thick disks, and toss them in a large bowl with 2 teaspoons of canola oil and salt and pepper to taste. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, spray with non-cooking spray and top with the potatoes, baking for 10 minutes. Flip each chip and bake for another 10 minutes.
In a medium pot, heat 3 cups of canola oil to 360 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking soda and season with salt and pepper. Mix in 2 cups of seltzer water. Dredge 4 halved tilapia fillets with flour, salt and pepper. Dip them in the batter and fry them for six minutes. Serve with the potato chips and tartar sauce.
For the AllRecipes.com version, place 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of water, 1/4 cup of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of salt in a large bowl. Whisk all the ingredients together until smooth and use the mixture as fish batter.
