After the success of the grain free chicken nuggets I thought I would have a go at grain free fish fingers. I recently had some frozen shop bought gluten free fish fingers but was disappointed by the quality of the fish inside. I decided to make a grain free version myself so I could then make them with good quality fresh fish. I was really pleased with the results.
recipe- serves 2
1/2 cup of almond flour
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tsp turmeric ( or a mix of turmeric and a little paprika )
1 tsp salt
pepper to taste
1 beaten egg
fresh cod or similar firm white fish
mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl
slice the white firm fish into fingers or nuggets ( these cook very quickly )
beat an egg in a bowl
firstly egg the fish by placing it in the beaten egg and covering both sides
then lay the fish in the breadcrumb style coating and the turn over making sure coating
covers both sides.
prepare the frying pan with coconut oil or butter and heat
when pan has heated up, fry the fish fingers
mine took five minutes in all
this depends on the thickness and size of your fish fingers.
they will turn a beautiful golden brown colour
add more coconut oil or butter if needed
pop finished fish fingers on to a plate and serve
delicious with homemade mash or chips or butternut squash or sweet potato chips
Adults and children will love them!
