  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus more leaves for garnish

Directions

Mix egg and water and slowly whisk in flour and cornmeal. Add parsley, garlic salt, onion salt, salt, and ground white pepper. Lay prepared fish in batter while oil is heating.
