Here's an usual take on fish batter - it uses crushed salt and vinegar chips instead of breadcrumbs. You'll be amazed how well it works.
1 oz. of salt and vinegar chips was not nearly enough to coat the fish for me so I added some salt and pepper kettle style chips that I had on hand. All and all a great recipe but plan on using more chips and less egg. This is one I will use with perch as well as catfish from our pond. Thanks! - 02 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I thought this dish was to oily! Plus the fatty chips . This wasnt a healthy choice on my part sorry, but thanks for some idea's. I'll stick to baking. - 20 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
What a tasty recipe for something so simple. My mother never tried smallmouth bass before and, in general, does not eat fish except for walleye. When she tried this salt-and-vinegar-chip recipe, she enjoyed it so much that she now wants me to make it for our next all-fish Christmas Eve family dinner. I think it will be a hit for everyone at Christmas time. I didn't change/add a thing. Perfection cannot be further perfected. Great recipe! - 04 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
