If you can make a fish batter using beer, I thought why not try Mountain Dew. This is my spin on the recipe and my husband really loved it. I am allergic to fish and most Seafood, but I love pleasing my husband with foods that he loves. He loves Cod Fish Fillets, and today I made Alaskan Cod Fish. It really looked so good and tasty, & you could even see the spices in the batter. He said the fish was light and flakey and very tasty and had a smooth batter.

It pleases me immensely when I can make something that my husband truly loves and enjoys. A happy husband makes a happy wife. smile
