Why not try egg, heavy cream and a little bake mix. Kinda like a runny pancake batter. I haven't tried it. Let me know if it works. Would be great for onion rings.

I wish I could remember where I saw it, but I saw a recipe once where you used soda water in the recipe and that's what made the batter "puffy".
Maybe it'll refresh someone elses memory.

Wasn't there a recipe using soda on Low Carb and Lovin' it one time. You might check the recipes from George Stella's Food TV network show.

The Carbquik site has a recipe for beer battered fish. I haven't tried it yet, but here it is if you want to give it a go.
1 lb. fish fillets
4 Tab. Carbquik
1 cup Carbquik
1/2 cup low carb beer
1 tsp. salt
oil for frying
Heat oil (1 1/2 in.) in heavy saucepan or deep fryer to 350.
Lightly coat fish in the 4 Tab. of Carbquik.
Mix remaining ingredients with hand beater or wire whisk until smooth. If batter is too thick, stir in additional beer, 1 Tab. at a time until desired consistency.
Dip fish into batter, letting excess drip into bowl, using a fork to spear the fish.
Fry about 2 min. on each side, or until golden brown. Drain. Serve hot with LC tartar sauce.
If anyone tries it, please report back!

I've made the carbquik version a few times with good results.
The big trick is the right temperature control. If its too hot, the carbquik burns VERY fast and comes off the fish. I tend to go a little lower temp (around 325), then it turns out very tastey.
This also works for really good onion rings and other seafood.
Hope this helps.

I made that Crbquik recipe, and the batter fell off. Someone suggested that I put the battered fish in the frige for awhile, and then fry it. Haven't tried it that way yet, but the batter that did stick was very good.

I also have heard of people using Sherrilee's pancake/waffle batter for coating fish or veggies for frying. Just add the spices that you want to the batter or coat the fish with it first. Do a search for Sherrilee and you should find it.....or search for "Aunt Jemima" in the subject line.
