Shore Lunch: Healthy "Fried" Fish

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 8

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup avocado oil divided
  • 1 1/4 cups 100% whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 cup buttermilk powder
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp paprika
  • 8 each fish filet 6-8 oz each

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200.
  • Mix flour, baking powder, salt, buttermilk powder, 2 Tablespoons avocado oil, pepper, cayenne, onion powder, italian seasoning, garlic powder, and paprika in a gallon sized zip top plastic bag. Mix well. Add filets. Shake to coat.
  • Heat remaining oil in a large skillet. Add coated filets. Cook 4 minutes per side or until golden. Remove to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Keep warm in preheated oven while cooking the remaining filets.

Notes

To make just the breading, in case you want to have some on hand the next time a fresh catch lands on your doorstep, combine flour and next 9 ingredients.  Store tightly covered in the pantry or the freezer.  (I prefer the freezer.)  Making the breading in advance is sort of like buying a box of Shore Lunch®... only better.
