This recipe creates a light and crispy batter with seasoning to flavor any fish. Don't like fish all that well...this is the recipe for you as there is no fishy taste once you've battered your fish with these seasonings. You can add other seasonings of your liking; I prefer to use McCormick brands and now and then add a squirt of mustard or Worcestershire sauce.
