I made this recipe two different ways. On one fish fillet was rolled in Low Carb Bake Mix. The other was rolled in Bob's Red Mill gluten free all purpose flour.
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs fish fillets (Cod, Tilapia, Haddock or any other white fish)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ to 1 cup of low carb bake mix or gluten free flour blend
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice or juice of 1 lemon
  • oil for frying
Instructions
  1. In a skillet add enough oil to the pan until it measures about ½ inches deep. Turn the heat to medium and being to heat the oil.
  2. Place the fish fillets on a plate or baking sheet and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  3. Squeeze the lemon juice over the fish and allow to set for no more than 5 minutes.
  4. Place the bake mix or flour in a plate or bowl that is large enough to turn the fish to coat it.
  5. In a bowl another bowl beat the eggs and water together.
  6. When the oil has heated being coating the fish. First dip a fillet in the egg mixture. Then place in the bake mix/flour mixture turning to coat both sides. Lay the fish into the hot oil and cook for about 4 minutes. Turn and cook another 4 minutes or until the fish is a golden brown.
  7. Remove fillets and place on paper towels to help absorb the excess oil.
