“Adapted from Betty Crocker with minor changes. Not the typical Louisiana cornmeal fry batter, but pretty good. I've had great success with copycat Bisquick recipes from Zaar. Double the recipe for a batch of onion rings on the side. If desired, season the batter to taste with Old Bay or Cajun Seasoning blends in place of salt and pepper.”

  2. Lightly coat fish with the 3 to 4 tablespoons Bisquick mix (or cornstarch).
