Great for any seafood batter recipe. Makes a lighter, crunchy, flaky coating.
1 medium egg
1/2 cup of cornstarch
1/2 cup of all purpose flour
1 Tsp. of baking soda
1Tsp. of baking powder
2/3 cup of whole milk
Lightly beat 1 egg and stir in milk.
In a separate bowl. Mix dry ingredients: baking soda, baking powder, flour and cornstarch.
Next, slowly pour in milk / egg liquid in with dry ingredients.
Stir until both dry and wet ingredients are fully mixed with no lumps.
I like to store the batter in the fridge until ready to use.
This batter is perfect for shrimp, cod, haddock.
A pinch of salt, pepper, Old Bay Seasoning, paprika,
or red chili powder would give the batter a little heat and flavor.

Here is a nice wine that would pair well with any fish recipe.
