    I found it a bit floury and starchy tasting  -  04 May 2018


    Great recipie! If you dredge whatever you're frying in flour before you put it in the batter, it helps the batter stick more and makes it thicker.  -  22 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Simple, tasty batter. I added just a little salt to enhance flavor. I use it to make fried shrimp with onion rings on the side. It helps to dust your fish, shrimp, etc. with flour first, then dipping in the batter. Some people have said this batter is too thin; add a little more flour if you like, but note that a heavy batter will fry up very dense and retain a lot of oil.  -  07 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
