Cooking Tip #27
Batter vs. Breading
Batters are liquid mixtures
of flour, eggs and milk or water. Breadings are dry ingredients used to
coat fish such as cracker crumbs, bread crumbs, flour or corn meal.
Usually the fish is dipped into an egg mixture and then into the dry
mixture. Batters tend to result in a thicker, breadier coating after the
fish is fried. Corn meal breading is the favorite way to prepare
Southern favorites like catfish and crappie.
