Keto Fried Fish

This Keto Fried Fish dish is incredibly tasty! Eat it straight up or put some tartar sauce on your favorite low-carb bun to make a great fish sandwich! You won’t believe that it adheres to the paleo diet and is minimal in carbs and gluten.
From kindergarten through college, I attended Catholic schools because I was raised as a Catholic. Although my religious beliefs have substantially evolved since then, I still like a nice fish fry! Every church in the area seems to specialize in a certain type of fish, as well as certain sides.
The fish from my childhood’s Lenten fish fry can easily be replaced with this dish!

Another Variation Of The Recipe

With the help of some basic seasonings and almond flour, this keto fried fish is pan-fried until it has a golden brown, crispy exterior. There is enough of taste in the homemade spicy keto tartar sauce to go with the fish.

Why this recipe is so great, exactly…

Tilapia is a cheap, low-calorie, flaky white fish that is high in vitamins and minerals, according to Health line.

I adore this fish since it has a very mild flavor. This makes the hot tartar sauce the ideal dipping sauce for tilapia.
Fish should be covered in seasoned flour and fried in mildly flavored oil if you like your pan-fried fish with a crispy crust.

We use a combination of a tiny bit of almond and coconut flour to keep this dish low carb/keto friendly. When the fish is fried, you cannot tell that it wasn’t made using all-purpose flour.
Tuna cooked in the air fryer and grilled swordfish are two more delectable keto fish recipes to try. Both of them are incredibly tasty and simple to create.

Notes & replacements for ingredients

Tilapia fillets that were frozen and defrosted in the refrigerator for roughly 8 hours are the white fish we’re utilizing in this dish.
Cove fish is in almond and coconut flour . If you like, chickpea flour can be used instead. It has no gluten and is frequently used to cook fish.

Old Bay, salt, and pepper are the only basic seasonings required. Use any of your preferred spices. Try adding some paprika/garlic, dill, lemon pepper, crushed red pepper, and onion.
Fry the fish in a mild-tasting oil with a high smoke point.

Tartar sauce alternatives & keto hot

Combine the relish, mayo, lemon juice, chilli sauce, horseradish, mustard, and seasonings to make the spicy tartar sauce. You can change the amount of heat in the chilli sauce to suit your preferences. Keep chilled until you’re ready to use.
We enjoy fried fish with hot tartar sauce, but you may also try lemon cream, parsley, ketchup, herb, almond romesco, mint, tomato ginger, or sweet and sour sauces.

Step-by-step guidelines

Combine the almond and coconut flours with the spices.
After patting the fish fillets dry with paper towels, press them firmly into the flour mixture on both sides. Completely cover, then gently shake off any extra flour.
For one to two minutes, heat a cast iron pan or other sizable, heavy pan over high heat. Pour oil into the pan, then tilt it slightly while holding the handle to coat the bottom of the pan.
Don’t move the floured fish for at least two minutes after adding it to the pan.
Gently test if a fillet is releasing from the pan by sliding a metal spatula under it. Allow it to cook for another 30 to 60 seconds if it’s still stuck to the bottom.
