Baked Coconut Cod

16 May

When I was kid, my dad was a commercial fisherman.  I grew up eating the cream of the ocean and to this day love good quality fish. Unfortunately, I do not live near a good fish market and I am limited to what I can find at my local supermarket.

Most cheaper grade of fish are best battered and fried.  GAPS/SCD limit us in being able to fry foods like fish.  I got to thinking about ways to oven fry…and remembered a while back that I oven fried chicken livers with some success.   So I decided to try this with my package of cod.

I dipped the pieces of cod into an egg wash and then rolled them in a seasoned coconut flour mixture (seasoning was garlic, salt, black pepper, paprika, and thyme).  After placing them on a greased cookie sheet I baked the coconut floured fish in a 350 oven about 15 minutes or until the breading is golden brown. (timing will vary depending on the thickness of the pieces.

I served this with carrot soup, some freshly made Kimchi, and spinach cooked with mushrooms and onions.

A fast and easy meal to prepare.  So if you miss fried fish try this oven version!

    And it really was very simple and quick to do. The hardest part was remembering to thaw out the fish!
