Gluten-Free Fish Sticks

It's that Friday fish time again. I have a fantastic and super easy recipe for homemade fish sticks and tartar sauce that is gluten-free and completely Foodgasmic.

It will take you less time to make this recipe than it will for you to heat up some frozen fish sticks in the oven. And it will be healthier for you and taste way better. I love the flavor and crispness of the breading even more than when using just plain flour. The almond flour adds great flavor and the rice flour adds a nice lightness to it.

I've also included a recipe for an herbed tartar sauce to go with. Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Fish Sticks
Serves 4

1.5  pounds white fish (Halibut or Cod)
2 eggs, whisked
½ cup almond flour or almond meal
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon cracked pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
¼ - ½ cup olive oil

·       Rinse fish fillets in cold water, pat dry and set on a plate

·       Cut fish into 1 inch by 5 inch pieces, following the lines of the fillets (remove any bones if needed)

·       Place eggs in one dish and flours with salt, pepper and paprika in another.

·       Dip fish sticks in egg, then flour; reserve to a plate

·       Put 5 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet and heat oil on medium high.

·       Place half of the fish sticks in the pan, leaving enough room around them so that they aren’t too crowded.

·       Cook for a few minutes on each side, until nicely golden brown then remove fish sticks to a plate lined with a paper towel.

·       Add 5 more tablespoons olive oil to pan and fry remaining batch of fish sticks.

·       Serve the Gluten-Free Fish Sticks with Herbed Tartar Sauce (see recipe below).

Herbed Tartar Sauce
Makes 1 ½ cups sauce

½ cup OIKOS plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
¼ cup cornichons or gherkins (mini dill pickles), finely chopped
¼ cup capers, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh basil, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh dill, chopped
1 teaspoon chive, chopped
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper


·      Mix all ingredients together in small bowl.

·      Store in refrigerator till needed.

·      Serve with the Gluten-Free Fish Sticks.

So, try this out and let me know if you loved it as much as I did.
