Long John Silver’s Batter Fish or Chicken

Do you love this crispy batter-dipped fish? Crispy on the outside, with the fish cooked perfectly on the inside, it is hard to resist this fish. Growing up this was a favorite restaurant of mine. I remember the day when the Long John Silver’s first opened in Pueblo, Colorado. My family got in the car, and we were soon munching on this fish.

I have been putting off trying to get the recipe down as I knew it was going to be a task. Long John Silver’s has such a unique batter that I knew replication was going to be difficult.

So, we will whip up another batch this evening. I know the kids will be super excited to have our own homemade Long John Silver’s. If you are a fan of Long John Silver’s like we are, give this CopyCat Long John Silver’s Chicken Plank Recipe a try.
