This is a recipe review, which means this is a recipe that I did not personally come up with, but that I tried out and am giving my opinion on how the recipe turned out. For legal reasons I cannot post these recipes, but I can tell you where you can get them yourself.

**UPDATE** Since I reviewed this recipe I have come up with some improvements after some tips from Alton Brown and Tyler Florence. Check out my recipe for my Food Network Inspired Fried Cod.

One of my favorite fast foods meals growing up was getting fish from Long John Silver’s. But now I want to capture that flavor at home. So I looked up a recipe to make a liquid battered cod, I found this one from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten of Food Network. I have been using this recipe for over a year now for every time I make cod. Here are my cooking notes.

1. I pretty much follow the recipe as it, except that I buy large eggs, the recipe calls for an extra large egg, but I always stick with the large one.
2. I have used canola oil before instead of vegetable oil in this recipe and it works well.
3. This is a great dish to cook in an electric skillet. I set my skillet to around 375. And usually cook about 3 minutes per side.
4. Practice caution when flipping the fish and it’s easy to splatter oil on yourself.

For a side, most of the time I cooked up some white sushi rice (or short grain rice), instead of the traditional french fries (or chips).
