Fish goujons

fish goujons

Skinless, white fish is best used for these fish goujons. The batter recipe can be used to coat chicken, beef, fruit, onion rings and mushrooms. Any fizzy drink is suitable if you don’t happen to have fizzy water, but you do need self-raising flour or plain flour with baking powder.
