I've been on this mission to find the best fried fish batter. I finally got my hands on the ingredients to Long John Silvers batter.

Can you help me figure this out?

Listed in order:
WHEAT FLOUR
CORN STARCH
YELLOW CORN FLOUR
SALT
MSG
SPICES (INCLUDING PAPRIKA)
BAKING SODA
GARLIC POWDER
NATURAL FLAVORING

I am thinking "spices" might include either/or:
mustard powder, onion powder, black pepper, and maybe dill or celery salt ????????

What about "natural flavoring" ???? could this be SUGAR ???

Anybody worked there before or know??

For one thing, there are any number of recipes for Long john Silver's batter that can be found by Googling. But save yourself the trouble, unless you actually believe Long John Silver's batter is any good, and order Gary Roach's stuff.

That link took me directly to the Checkout page- absolutely nothing about LJS batter. I hit "continue shopping" and was linked right back to this thread.

Spices including Paprika... lol.. Duh.. Like saying Taco Seasoning including ummm... Pepper?

For that airy batter your looking for, use soda water in place of the regular liquid called for in the recipe. Best of luck there and Welcome to Roadfood!

Sorry. I must not have made myself clear. I was suggesting buying Gary Roach's batter instead of trying to imitate Long John Silver's batter.

I am suggesting that this topic be moved to chains where it belongs!

In light of my post, that's a darn good idea!

This is incredibly embarrassing, but true: I live in what many believe to be a seafood lover's paradise, Louisiana. But most of what I see is either fried freshwater "wet things" ranging from catfish to alligator to crawfish or possibly-accurately-described-as-fresh saltwater goodies like crab cakes, oysters, or shrimp.
And I miss Long John Silver's, Arthur Treacher's, and especially H. Salt's fish and chips!!

I know, there's no hope: I'm a Philistine. What can I say?
