Jerrico, Inc., the parent company for Long John Silver's Seafood Shoppes, got its start in 1929 as a six-stool hamburger stand called the White Tavern Shoppe. Jerrico was started by a man named Jerome Lederer, who watched Long John Silver's thirteen units dwindle in the shadow of World War II to just three units. Then, with determination, he began rebuilding. In 1946 Jerome launched a new restaurant called Jerry's and it was a booming success, with growth across the country. Then he took a chance on what would be his most successful venture in 1969, with the opening of the first Long John Silver's Fish 'n' Chips. The name was inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. In 1991 there were 1,450 Long John Silver Seafood Shoppes in thirty-seven states, Canada, and Singapore, with annual sales of more than $781 million. That means the company holds about 65 percent of the $1.2 billion quick-service seafood business. Now you know the history, get going on making Long John Silver's Batter-Dipped Fish at home today.

I love Long John Silvers, and this recipe is very close. They offer two types of fish at LJS. Their regular fish meal is pollock and they also offer cod meals. I have used both kind of fish for this recipe. This is my favorite recipe for battered fish. The batter also works for chicken breast tenders like the ones sold at Long John Silvers.
