There is nothing more satisfying than a delicious plate of fried fish and french fries even though I rarely ever partake. Fried food can be a trigger for people with IBS which is why it is rarely in my food rotation but that doesn’t mean I don’t have cravings. My version of this dish is just as good but without the traditional deep frying method while still sticking to safe FODMAP foods. Instead, I coat the fish in potato flakes (which are naturally gluten-free) and lightly pan fry instead of deep frying.
It makes me laugh to think that it wasn’t until a few years ago that I started eating seafood. I’ve gotten more adventurous but when it comes to what fish I cook at home, I tend to stick to salmon, cod and shrimp.
On our honeymoon in Santorini, I learned a major lesson when I ordered dinner expecting to get a fillet but instead was served an entire fish. I wasn’t ready for the full head and tail experience. Has anyone else had this experience while traveling abroad and was completely startled?!Print
This is a healthified take on traditional fried fish.
- Assemble three bowls: each bowl with brown rice flour, egg, and mashed potato flakes (in this order).
- Dip fillets on both sides starting with rice flour, egg, and mashed potato flakes.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Add oil & butter to a heated large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Once melted, add fillets and cook 4 minutes on each side until the sides are browned and fish flakes easily with a fork.
