Gluten/Grain and Dairy Free Fried Fish Bites

These quick kid friendly "GF/ DF AND GRAIN FREE FRIED FISH BITES" sure beat the ones in the frozen food section. Yes, you have to actually buy fish, coat it and fry it, but, I am telling you, these are healthier, not to mention also, gluten/dairy and grain free and ever so good! Plus, when you make these from scratch, you actually know what you’re getting, while It is hard to say with some of the packaged options out there.


Recipe: Serves 4


Fish Sticks:
  • 1 pound firm white fish fillets (such as cod), deboned and portioned into 2 inch bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 eggs
  • coconut oil for frying
Lemon Dill Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise Note: I use homemade (see my Homemade Mayo recipe). 
  • 1/4 cup dill pickles, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • juice of 1/2 lemon 

  1. Combine the coconut flour, sea salt and pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
  2. Whisk the eggs in another bowl
  3. Coat each fish bite in the coconut flour mixture.
  4. Then coat in the eggs.
  5. Next, press the fish bites in almond meal.
  6. Repeat with all the fish bites.
  7. Place about 1-2 tablespoons of the coconut oil in a large skillet.
  8. Fry the fish bites in batches for about 2-3 minutes on each side over medium low until golden brown. Add more coconut oil to the skillet, as needed. 
For the Dipping Sauce:
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed. Place in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes for the flavors to combine.
  2. Serve the dipping sauce with the fish bites. Enjoy!
