    1) Dip in white flour
    2) Dip in beaten egg
    3) Dip in breadcrumbs
    4) Just shallow fry in oil

    Works for me

    You don't need a deep fat fryer, if you have enough oil or preferably beef dripping, then use a pan deep and wide enough. Using a deep fryer can be difficult as the batter can become stuck to the net and is also dangerous as the net needs to be dropped before adding the fish.
    My recipe is as follows...

    Plain Flour
    Milk
    Water
    Vinegar
    Salt
    Black Pepper

    Mix the ingredients into a thick paste gradually adding the milk, water and Vinegar, the amounts of flour etc. depend on how many fish you are frying, thin out the batter mix by adding more milk and water. Roll the fish fillet on a plate of seasoned flour, dip into the batter mix and drop into your pan deep fryer or whatever and cook until golden brown, turning the fish after 2 minutes will ensure crunchy batter all round.

    Cool. I will have to buy some beer on the way home it seems. And more neutral oil. We have two jerry cans of Olive oil but not much of the normal stuff

    And when you put the fish in the oil, lay the fish so that any splashes get propelled away from you.

    It's all in the wrist action; also soda water helps to create a crunchy batter.

    This I have learned from bitter experience. My hands and lower arms are a nice collection of burn/knife scars. I always was a bit clumsy in the kitchen.

    I went with the recipe @Rhythm linked too but with a slight mod. I didn't have any self raising flour so I added a tbs of baking soda.

    Hot damn! What a roaring success! I laued the frst cod fillet in and then turned away to prepare the second. By the time I looked back it had puffed up something fierce.

    Golden crusty scrumptious fishes. I even had some batter left to make deep fried bananas. As a kid I always dreamed about being able to make my own deep fried bananas and yesterday it happened. All thanks to you guys.
