Easter (and a totally unrelated recipe)

 Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. It was a fun-filled weekend for us. lots of eggs, as you can see.
Here's a recipe that every fish-lover should try.  I know, fish & Easter..? don't really go...but nevertheless, it is a great recipe. You will thank me later ;) I made this the other night when my husband expressed his huge craving for a similar crispy fish we had tried at one of our favorite Thai restaurants. It was experimental, to say the least, but it actually turned out - with positive ravings from the husband. wahoo! I serve it with a green coconut Thai curry. Fried foods is not big in our household... it's rare that I serve deep fried anything at the dinner table. But who doesn't like a crispy, battered, flaky goodness now and again?
Battered Crispy Fish:
1 cup self-rising flour*
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp baking powder*
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
dash of black pepper
*if you don't have self-rising flour, double the baking powder

For the fish, any kind of good white fish would work, like Cod. I used fresh Shutome (I guess its swordfish...hm, didn't know that), around a pound and a half.

Cut fish into large chunks or strips and coat in batter. Fry 2-3 strips at a time, in 350 degree oil. Take out and place on paper towels when golden brown and cooked through.
