Crispy Fried Fish Bites…

We went to the beach last week and had such a great trip with the whole family! One night we went out to eat and a bunch of the kids got fried shrimp, fried fish, and even some fried alligator. After seeing all of that fried food, it put me in the mood for something similar. So, last night we had fried cod and it was amazing! I have been wanting to fry something with arrowroot but just kept forgetting. Anyway, now I don’t know why I waited so long. Crispy on the outside and the fish was super light and flakey, it was a perfect combination. And while a little messy, it was very easy to make.

This is what you need to make some fried (gluten free of course) fish:

  • 1 lb wild cod or any white fish
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup arrowroot powder (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 6 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 egg white
  • sea salt to taste

Start by rinsing the fish in colander. Then pour 2 tbsp lemon juice over the fish and let it sit while you prep for the frying…

Get out two medium bowls. In one bowl, place 1 egg white and in the other, place 3/4 cup of arrowroot.

Next get the fish and shake it off to get it somewhat dry. Then cut the fish into 2″x2″ (or whatever size you’d like) chunks and place it in the bowl filled with the egg whites. Once it’s all cut, mix the fish and egg together with your hands so the fish is well coated. Then dip one piece of fish at a time into the arrowroot powder and cover it well and then place it on a large plate.

In a large fry pan, add 2-3 tbsp of coconut oil, lard or tallow (something that cooks well on high heat) and heat oil on medium high heat. Carefully place the pieces of fish onto the pan and let cook for 3 minutes or until brown. With tongs, flip the fish and allow it to cook for another 3 minutes. Add a little more oil here if needed. Once it’s done, use your tongs to carefully remove and place on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with sea salt. Pour another 2-3 tbsp of coconut oil in the hot pan and repeat the cooking process to cook the rest of the fish. Enjoy immediately!

Serves 4.

  • Coleen - Landria, these look good – do you know of a substitute for the egg white? Maybe just almond milk or even water?ReplyCancel

  • Landria - Coleen, you can probably just skip the egg white. I think the arrowroot would still stick well. I hope you like them!ReplyCancel

  • darlene - your have an absolutely beautiful daughterReplyCancel

  • Susan - Landria loved these fish bites!!! Is there any healthy tartar sauce you can recommend or that I could make to go along with them?

    • landriav - Yay, so great to hear Susan!!! Sorry, I don’t use one so I’m not sure. Maybe just dip them in some melted butter? Just a thought!ReplyCancel
