📓Breading Mix Ingredients:
¼ C + 2 tbsp. Grated Parmesan cheese
¼ C Golden flaxseed meal
¼ C Almond flour
Note: While the fish fry recipe serves 4, the breading mix recipe easily serves 6.

📓Fish Seasoning Ingredients
¼ C Smoked paprika
3 tbsp. Pink Himalayan salt or fine-grain sea salt
3 tbsp. Garlic powder
2 tbsp. Onion powder
1.5 tbsp. Ground black pepper
1.5 tbsp. Cayenne pepper
1.5 tbsp. Ground coriander
1 tbsp. Dried oregano leaves
1 tbsp. Dried basil leaves

📓Fried Fish Stick Ingredients
1 lbs. Cod or Haddock, washed and gently padded dry
1 Large egg, beaten
1 Batch of Breading Mix
1 tbsp. Dot’s Fish seasoning
Ghee or Coconut Oil for frying

1. Lay 2 layers of paper towels on a baking sheet and set aside.
2. Mix the Parmesan, almond flour and flaxseed meal in a medium bowl.
3. Next make your fish seasoning by combining the smoked paprika, salt, garlic, onion, peppers, coriander, oregano and basil in a small mixing bowl. Add 1 tablespoon to the breading mixture and store the remaining seasoning in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
4. Slice fish into 1 ½” pieces. Dip the fish slices into the beaten egg, shaking off any excess liquid. Then roll the fish in the Parmesan mixture, gently shaking off any excess. I recommend using one hand to dip the fish in the egg mixture and keeping the other dry to roll the fish in the breading mix. This way you keep more breading on the fish instead of your fingers!
5. Heat your fat of choice in a deep non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. You’ll want enough fat in your skillet to submerge 1/3 to 1/2 of the fish pieces.
6. Once the oil is hot, begin cooking similar sized slices of fish, careful not to over crowd; cook for 4-6 minutes, turning the fish about half way through. When done, move the fish to the paper towel lined baking sheet to remove excess oil before adding in the next batch of fish.

Looks great! Im so not good at frying fish but you made it look so doable I’m tempted to try it!

Anita T says:

Dot, you have such a down-home type of personality as you present your recipes with enthusiasm and your journey so transparently. You encourage me (and many others I am sure). Your fish looks amazing and your other recipes are great. I have tried a few and I experiment with adding my own tweaks! Love the channel!

Looks yummy. I’ve tried chicken nuggets and onion rings so far in my deep fryer. I fry using avocado oil. I’ve tried both almond flour and ground pork rinds. They both work well.

Rachel Della Rosa says:

“Wow” is all I can say! Very simple and easy, yet loaded with flavor. That breading recipe looks awesome. I absolutely love Dot’s reaction when she tastes her food…It’s so genuine. Thanks for sharing.

These look yummo! I would have to add some homemade mayo with dill for dipping the fish sticks 😉
