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.
  • 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
  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.
