Simple, Healthy, Battered Fish

Who doesn’t love crumbed or battered fish from the fish shop now and then.  What if I said you could leave out the bloated, gross feeling that happens afterwards?

Here it is:

Ingredients
  1. 600g fresh, white fish fillets. Around here I love Snapper, wild caught Barramundi or some reef cod. There are plenty of others around like flathead, blue eye, even whiting will work for this recipe.
  2. 4 tablespoons arrowroot/tapioca flour
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 1 lemon
  5. 4-5 tablespoons coconut oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Clean the fillets free of bones and skin and slice evenly no more than 2.5cm /1 inch thick
  2. Heat the oil in a large frypan over high heat. I use the electric frypan.
  3. Zest the lemon into the flour with some salt and pepper
  4. Lightly beat the eggs in another bowl
  5. Dust the fish slices in the flour, shake excess off and dip into the beaten egg
  6. Slide the fish against the inside of the bowl to remove the excess and lay gently into the hot oil
  7. Cook until the batter changes colour around the edges
  8. Flip and continue cooking around a minute or two and remove to drain on a paper towel lined plate or tray.
