Fried Fish

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 tbsp. coarse sea salt
  • 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.

  5. Serve hot with tartar sauce on the side.
