LONG JOHN SILVER’S BATTER DIPPED FISH

3 c. soybean oil
2 lbs. Fresh cod fillets
1 c. self-rising flour
1/3 c. dry mustard
1 c. water
1 egg
2 t. sugar
2 t. salt

Sift together mustard and flour. Heat oil to 400 degrees F. Cut the cod fillets into approximately 7x2" pieces. With a mixer blend the flour mixture, water, egg, sugar, and salt. Dip each fillet into the batter coating generously and quickly drop in the oil. Fry each fillet until dark golden brown about 5 minutes. Remove and drain. Soybean oil and mustard flour are the secrets here.
