Winter is here!!! And we are loving it here at Nana Glen – had our first big frost this week. Beautiful and crisp mornings to wake up to.
Haven’t showed you one of my favourite seafood recipes yet so I decided to share ‘Fish Bites’. This recipe was shared to my mum by her lovely and dear friend, Marg Hinde who passed away a couple of years ago at the great age of 95. Marg loved entertaining and she was fabulous at it so I hope you will love these.
Once this special recipe was in the hands of my mum they were made alot, loved by all the family, especially the grandchildren.
4 tablespoons self raising flour
1 tablespoon custard powder
salt and pepper
water – enough water to make a batter – approximately 6 tablespoons
1 medium firm white fillet – will make 12 bites
Now how simple is that!!! Once deep fried, you can freeze them and heat them in a hot oven until crisp when ‘those unexpected visitors knock on your door’.
If you want to make a double batch, all you will need is 1 1/2 times the batter quantity and just double the fish fillets.
The secret ingredient is of course the ‘custard powder’.
I believe this recipe is the best for crispy and golden fish bits. You can serve them with a side of chips or a fresh salad. Perfect with a little sweet chilli sauce too.
