This just a quick and easy nothing to it recipe. Well, at least it's easy after certain someone (yes me) has done a few dozen hundred times. I got this from an old cookbook that my Mom had and now I feel comfortable enough to share it with y'all.
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 Cup of ice cold water or if you have cold water in the fridge that will work too
1/2 Cup of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of sugar
Blend until dry ingredients are moistened. Then use to coat shrimp, fish, squash fried green tomatoes or whatever you want to fry.
