Fried food doesn’t have to be off limits when living a real food lifestyle. This fried fish recipe replaces the typical flour with arrowroot for a gluten free breading. Fry the fish up in healthy coconut oil instead of the processed oils and you’ll be on your way to a delicious dinner with no guilt in sight.

  • 2 lb wild Alaskan cod, or other firm white fish
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 c arrowroot powder, or tapioca flour
  • 1 c parmesan cheese
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 c coconut oil, (or enough the cover the bottom of your frying pan with at least 0.25 inch oil)
  • 1/2 c tartar sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Slice filets lengthwise to make long strips. In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs. Slowly whisk in arrowroot or tapioca flour, parmesan cheese, cayenne, and sea salt.

  • I literally cried. I was hopeful, but not too hopeful. I haven’t had any sort of fried fish in over 5 years (Dr told me I had to cut out gluten; potential celiac) and didn’t want to expect much. when I took the crispy bite that tasted like I could have gotten it from a pub I actually cried. I laughed at myself for it, but something inside was so relieved at getting to eat tasty fried fish again. My kids (who have never liked a fish stick they tried) all actually liked this too!
    We actually used mahi mahi & halibut because it was in the freezer already. We ended up using an extra egg but our eggs might be slightly smaller than the typical store bought because our chickens’ eggs vary in size a bit. YUM.
    Will make again!

  • I liked the easy meal prep and frying the fish was easy. I used Cod and substituted EVOO for the coconut oil, and added some paprika to the batter and a touch of club soda for some fluffiness, I fried the fish in my trusty electric skillet so that I could get the temp just right. My husband raved three times about the meal.
