Actually frozen is the way to go if you're deep frying. The secret to a crispy crust is not necessarily in the batter, but the temperature difference between the oil and the batter.

Octo's deep fried fish recipe:

Cut semi frozen fillets in about inch size pieces, about a kilo of them. Put them in a bowl to marinate with:
- a few cloves of garlic, pressed, grated, crushed or whatever
- ginger, I grated about half an inch because it was organic and pretty strong
- lemon juice, I squeezed half a lemon for a kilo only because a citrus press wasn't available and I couldn't be bothered pressing more. It could take a whole pressed lemon though
- salt to taste but at least a Tbsp for a kilo

Marinate for at least an hour then throw in flower before dipping in your favorite batter.

Deep fry until golden and let the noms begin

Of course a kilo of fish is overkill, but deep fry is great hangover food and easily reheated in the oven to regain the crunch so you might as well make a bunch

JR made cheddar bay biscuits that were delicious. I just find putting gravy on bread is atrocious and it's one thing I'll never make or try if I can avoid it.

i've eaten excellent biscuits & gravy

taste depends on.. who has the right skill in making it
& using natural ingredients (not canned gravy)
