I JUST finished frying the fish in the oil. Tried a piece of fish that had already cooled and the batter is really bland. I added more seasoning, because it didn't look like enough, and even adding more, it still wasn't. The photo of the meal? DEFINITELY used a deep fryer, because there is NO WAY that came out of a pan. MIsleading.
