Patience goes a long way when it comes to frying fish (something I learned from my old grandmother). You need to keep a close eye while frying fish, making sure you adjust the heat on the stove in order to get a crispy exterior. It helps to allow the fish to cook a little longer on medium low heat as this will leave you with a nicely browned coating with very tender flesh. Serve these keto fish fingers immediately as they will end up turning soft since we’ve used coconut flour in place of breadcrumbs.

Instructions

  2. 2
    Now wash the fillets and dry them with a paper towel.
  3. 3
    Season the pieces of fish with garlic powder, seasoned salt and a sprinkle of cooking salt.
  4. 4
    Beat one egg in a bowl and leave aside.
  5. 5
    Put the coconut flour in a plate and keep it close to the beaten egg.
  6. 6
    Now dip each piece of fish into the egg, drain off excess and coat in coconut flour. Arrange all the coated pieces on a dry plate.
  7. 7
    Youll have to press the coconut flour onto the pieces of fish so that they get coated well.
  8. 8
    Heat approximately 1 Tbsp of Oil in a pan and carefully put the pieces of fish in.
  9. 9
    The oil shouldnt be extremely hot as this will only burn the coconut flour.

    Cook the fish fingers on medium low heat for approximately 3 minutes on one side. Then turn the fish over very carefully.
  11. 11
    Add another 2 Tbsp of oil to brown the pieces on the other side.
