- Prepare the shrimp and squid for frying fish in batter
- Remove the shells and intestines from the shrimp and rinse them under running water.
- The squid rings if you want you can take them already cleaned.
- Put squid and shrimp on a sheet of kitchen paper so that they are completely dry.
- Meanwhile, heat plenty of peanut oil.
- Dip the squid and shrimp into the batter.
- Take them with a fork letting the excess batter drain and dip them into the hot oil.
- Fry a few pieces at a time so as not to lower the temperature of the oil.
- When the fried fish is well swollen and golden, drain them with a slotted spoon and transfer them to a plate with kitchen paper.
- The fried fish in batter is ready, add a pinch of salt and if you want some lemon juice and enjoy it hot and crunchy!
- You can choose the fish you prefer.
