Default Leftover batter from fish & chips, now what?

I have about 2 cups of leftover batter from some homemade fish and chips that I made this evening. What do I do with it now, besides make more fish and chips, lol? Since this is my first time making it and I've no insight into this traditional British food, I have no ideas what to do with the leftovers.

Find someone you don't like.

Season them well and pour over the leftovers.

However you will then be prosecuted for assault and battery.

Groan.

Question: has the fish been dipped into it, because if so I'd be inclined to either simply cook it and feed it to the birds, or toss it. If it's fresh, you could use it to make pancakes (or crepes if we're feeling european). These can be frozen flat with greaseproof paper between them, or filled with either sweet or savoury fillings and either eaten immediately or also frozen.

When I lived oop north the chippies used to give away free "scraps" of batter with anything, if you asked for it. Probably not very healthy, but one of my better memories of living up there. How about deep fried Mars Bar?

VERY good point there jennifer ... this batter was used to dredge the fish through, so is there any risk of salmonella or any other sort of nasty foodborne illness if I kept it in the fridge overnight?

I don't know one way or the other, to be honest - I'd just be a bit squeamish personally.

I would think cooking the batter would eliminate that but I guess it depends how high the heat is?

I'm just dumping it. I hate wasting food but in reality it's like ... 1/3 cup of flour, 1/2 an egg, and a small amount of other stuff. I hate food poisoning even more than wasting food.
