Recipe: Gluten Free Fish & Chips

Are you a fan of fried fish? Since going gluten free, do you occasionally miss the yummy comfort food of some fish and chips? Give this recipe a try and see if it satisfies a little of that craving. I am honored to say I get a ton of positive feedback on my Chicken Nugget Recipe.  This recipe is a take on that one, with a few minor changes for flavor, but also in my cooking method.

  • 1/2 Pound Fish (I used a nice, firm Cod)
  • Batter
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Arrowroot Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Milk (Dairy free is OK to use!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon Lemon Peel (I used dry)
  • Dust
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 Tablespoons Arrowroot
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon Lemon Peel (I used dry)


  1. Cut the fish into planks, nuggets or pieces but keep the thickness at about 1/2 inch.
  2. Whisk the batter ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, large enough to accommodate the cut up fish.
  3. Drop the fish pieces into the batter and coat all the pieces. Set aside.
  4. Combine the dust ingredients on a small plate.
  5. If you don't have a well-seasoned cast iron pan that nothing sticks to, then opt for a non-stick frying pan. Fish is much more delicate than chicken, so non-stickability is key.
  6. Over medium heat, heat a few tablespoons of oil.
  7. Once the oil is hot, take the fish pieces, one at a time, and dredge lightly in the dust. (You may need to do a few batches, depending on the size of your pan).
  8. Gently place the fish pieces into the oil and fry for a few minutes, until the underside is golden.
  9. Gently and carefully flip the fish (using tongs or a spatula) and cook the other side until golden as well. If you cut the fish into thicker chunks, you may need to turn them on their sides to brown them up as well.
  10. Place the cooked fish onto a rack for a few moments...refrain from using paper towel as it may pull the batter off.
  11. Serve with your favorite potatoes.
