Long John Silvers Chicken Planks (with their honey mustard dipping sauce) are one of my most beloved, and equally guilty, fast food pleasures. I enjoy all of their deep-fried delights, but the planks are my favorite. Here is the secret recipe to their wonderful batter, which in my opinion is what makes their food so decadently delicious!
This Long John Silver’s style Deep Fry Batter recipe is the perfect way to get that crispy coating on your fish and seafood. It’s a simple recipe made with basic ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. This recipe can be used to fry fish, shrimp, and other seafood, giving you that perfect crispy texture on the outside and a moist, flaky texture on the inside.
The recipe is very easy to make, all you have to do is combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix them together, and then dip your fish or seafood in the batter before deep-frying. The key to success is making sure that the oil is at the right temperature before you start frying.
This recipe is perfect for a quick and easy weeknight dinner, or for a special occasion when you want to impress your guests. You can serve the fish and seafood with your favorite dipping sauce, or even with some fries on the side.
