Do you batter your own fish, onion rings or chicken?
The big question – Do you have a separate flour and batter mix for each of these food items?
Vegetables, fish and chicken all need a separate flour and batter mix to avoid cross contamination of allergens.
What would happen if an onion ring coated in flour and batter contaminated by raw fish was consumed by someone allergic to fish? The consequences could be serious for both your customer and your business.
It is also important to keep vegetarian options strictly vegetarian.
Food Fact – Did you know that alcohol boils at a lower temperature than water. Using a neutral spirit such as vodka in your batter will keep fish even cooler while the batter itself becomes dry and crisp sooner.
