Long John Silver’s Batter


Long John Silver’s batter is known for its light and crispy texture, perfect for coating seafood and making delicious fried dishes. Here’s a recipe to recreate Long John Silver’s batter at home:


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika (optional, for a hint of flavor)
  • 1 cup cold water


1. Prepare the Dry Ingredients:

a. In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and paprika if using. Stir these dry ingredients together until they are well combined.

2. Add Cold Water:

a. Gradually pour the cold water into the dry ingredients while stirring continuously. Keep stirring until the batter is smooth and free of lumps.

3. Adjust the Consistency:

a. You can adjust the thickness of the batter by adding more water if you want a thinner coating or more flour if you prefer a thicker coating. The batter should be thick enough to stick to the seafood or food you’re frying.
