  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp [60 g] dill pickle relish
  • ½ tbsp ½ tbsp curry powder
Chips
  • 1½ lbs 650 g rutabaga
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper
Fish
  • 1½ lbs 650 g white fish
  • 2 2 eggeggs
  • 1 cup 225 ml [110 g] almond flour
  • 1 cup 225 ml grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp paprika powder
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2 cups 475 ml oil for frying
  • 1 1 lemon, for serving

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix all ingredients for the tartar sauce. Place in the fridge while making the rest of the dish.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Peel the rutabaga and cut into thin rods. Brush the rods with oil and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the rods, until golden brown.
  3. In the meantime, prepare the fish. Crack the eggs in a bowl and use a fork to combine.
  4. On a plate, mix almond flour, parmesan cheese and seasonings.
  5. Cut the fish in bite-sized pieces, approximately 1 x 1 inch, and cover with the flour mix. Dip in beaten eggs and then cover again with flour.
  6. Heat the oil in a deep sauce pan to 340°F–360°F (170-180°C). (Always keep a lid within reach in case the oil catches fire. Never use water on burning oil. Place the lid on the pan and remove from the heat.) You can also use a deep fryer if you have one, follow instructions for your device.
  7. Fry the fish for 3 minutes on each side or until the breading is golden brown and the fish is cooked through. Serve with the baked rutabaga fries and tartar sauce.

Tip!

Instead of rutabaga fries you can serve our onion rings or parmesan-roasted green beans. If you're not a fan of tartar sauce you might want to check out our chili aioli or tzatziki, they both work really great with fried fish.

    What kind of oil was used?
  2. paul
    same question about oil :) also how about air frying?

    I, too, am wondering about what oil/fat was used! Anyone?!? I may try it with tallow for the high temp stability.

    Avocado oil would be good to use due to its high smoke point.

    I find almond flour difficult to use as a fried coating it' burns too quickly!

    Experimenting with gram flour (ground chick pea flour), its lower carb than plain flour and fries really well.

    For all my fried foods I use a combination of finely ground pork rinds (pork rind crumbs) mixed with Parmesan cheese and whatever spices & herbs I'm using. I do my oven fried chicken with this mixture and it comes out crispy and delicious. I do my fried fish with this mixture and use just a little olive oil and melted butter (about a half inch, not deep fried) in a large frying pan. I fry fillets a couple minutes on each side. Yummy! If you don't find pork rinds where you live, Amazon sells something called Pork Dust, I forget the brand, which is ground pork rinds. I've tried them but it's cheaper for me to make my own since I have access to Pork Rinds which I grind in my ninja by the bag.

    I found that you can actually skip the oil entirely by baking on the 2nd top rack of the oven at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes. This is also a common cooking temperature and time for many frozen fries (I like the Alexia brand), which makes it a quick dinner on a weeknight too. Both the fries and the fish come out nicely browned and crispy :)

    Is this Keto or low carb?

    is this really over 2000 calories a serving??

    At one point, I used pork rinds that I would place in a food processor to make a "flour". Pork rinds have 0 carbs.
