Sounds like a GREAT weekend, DM!! How about sharing your fish batter recipe with us, hmmmm? I used to have a friend who battered her fish in a mixture of buttermilk and Ritz crackers. Made for a really nice, crunchy batter.

Very simple.............Around here we all use SHORELAND fish batter.....

Our favorite is to mix SHorelands cajun and original at a 50/50 ratio and deep fry.......We almost NEVER pan fry our fish.
