Another of those great combination of flavours is honey and lemon. Not only those it taste great in cooking but nothing beats a hot honey drink with a slice of lemon when I'm down with flu. It's comforting and good for that sore throat of mine that always bug me when I get the flu. Splashie Boy swears that honey can also cure coughs as he took a spoonful of honey in a plastic spoon daily last year when he had a bad cough.
This recipe for the honeyed lemon fish fillets is courtesy of Gina from Kitchen Capers. When I mixed the batter, I was a bit sceptical as it was quite thick but after tasting the fried fish, the batter was nice and light. I omitted the oil for the sauce and added bits of lemon rind that gave a slight tang to the sauce.
