Cod Loin or any type of fish, or sausages

 

Place the flour and bicarbinate of soda in a bowl and whisk in the water to make a smooth batter. Stir in the lemon juice and a pinch of salt.
Wash the fish and dry on kitchen paper. Meanwhile heat the oil and check correct temperature by dripping a small drop of batter into it - when it rises to the top and fizzes it is ready. Dust the fish in flour, coat with batter and carefully put into the oil. After about 3mins, turn it over and cook the other side for about 3mins, until the fish is cooked through. Lift out and drain on kitchen paper. Enjoy with chips, salad and/or garlic sauce.

Put in the oven and heat the fat till smoking hot, then pour in the batter. Add the sausages and put back in the oven. Bake fpr 5-10 mins at 230c (450f) (gas8) then reduce the heat to 200c,400f, gas6 and bake 20-30mins or until the batter around the sausages has risen and is a deep golden brown.
