Blue skies and sunny evenings mean fish ‘n’ chips! Let’s do it – paleo style!
When you start out on your ‘eating healthily’ journey, you tend to think of bland and boiled foods – at least I did! Steamed this and raw that… However, if you’ve taken a peek around my blog you’ll know that that isn’t the case at all! If anything, I’ve had more variety and flavour than I have in a long while. Playing around with real food and learning every day – there’s no chance of boredom because the options available to you just keep coming… Take this, for example, coconut crumbed fish. Oh yum.
Now, fish ‘n’ chips is what some food dreams are made of. Made the right way, I doubt there’s much that can beat it! I’ve had my fair share over the years, and I have to say, I was very reluctant to muck about with it and do the coconut thing… But then I thought, well, I’ve done it with my crumbed chicken so why not try it with fish. Simple enough. The result? Hmmm… Nom nom nom!!!
Recipe for Paleo Coconut Crumbed Fish
Yield: Serves 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
What you need
4 white fish fillets (I used angel fish)
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive/coconut oil for frying
What you need to do
1. Add the coconut to one plate, and beat the egg in another (I use pasta plates). Season the coconut and the egg with salt and pepper. You could add dried herbs/cayenne pepper/or any flavouring into the coconut.
2. Dip the fish into the egg, then coat thoroughly in the coconut. Lay it on another plate. Repeat with all the fillets.
Serve hot with any sides of your choosing – I served mine with broccoli, sweet potato chips and my lemon and poppyseed mayo (as per pic above).
*If you prep these in advance, reheat in the oven.*
It’s quick, easy and so delish. A fishy feast for the fam 😉
