I put the fish (usually cod) in milk, then flour and finally into the batter. I deep fry around 365 F.How can I get consistently crispy fish? Some batter recipes include eggs, or a mixture of flour and cornstarch. Will these ingredients increase crispiness? Is temperature control of the batter crucial?
