Hi Flattyyakker,
Are these caught in PH or Georges River/Botany Bay?

That's it ...get it from the supermarket and mix one cup with half an ice cold beer;) Perfect thin batter that keeps the moisture in. You can also add salt and pepper and anything else to the flour to change up the flavour :egrin:
