I bet you have always wanted to make Long John Silvers fish recipe, now you can with this copycat recipe. You can recreate this crispy fish batter at home.
Do you love this crispy batter-dipped fish? Crispy on the outside, with the fish cooked perfectly on the inside, it is hard to resist this fish. Growing up this was a favorite restaurant of mine. I remember the day when the Long John Silver’s first opened in Pueblo, Colorado. My family got in the car, and we were soon munching on this fish.
This batter is very close to the Fish and Chips that are served overseas. What makes this recipe unique, is that the fish is crispy, but it isn’t done with a beer batter. Club soda is the key ingredient that makes this batter extra special. The batter has both baking soda and baking powder in it, and when combined with the club soda, it gives the batter a special lift you will love.
