    Do we have primal fish coating?

    Primal Fuel
    I'm cooking alot of fish currently and was wondering if there was a Primal recipe for a fish breading comparable to a fish fry batter?

    You can use almond meal or coconut flour. It won't be quite the same as a grain-based batter, but should give you a similar feel. Mark has a recipe at the bottom of this post:

    Crushed pork rinds are also an option, but the best non-grain "breading" I've EVER had consisted mostly of ground macadamia nuts. Seemed like part of it was finely ground and then there were larger chunks of the nuts - it was deeeelicious.

    I use almond meal mixed with food processed pecans and any seasonings you like (garlic salt, pepper). I dip the fish in egg and batter. I then pan fry in coconut oil and butter. I mix some yellow onion in as well some time.

    The batter doesn't stick quite as well as conventional, but what falls off you can put back on when done, it really turns out pretty tasty. Batter sticks better if you can refrigerate for 15 -20 minutes after.

    Ok, I'll be making some fish now.

    Ah, I can never stomach whole fish. I have to make it into fish salad. This assumes your cut is about 5"x5":

    1. Shred the fish into small chunks.
    2. In a medium bowl, mix together three heaping spoonfuls of mayo, a half a cup of water, a teaspoon of paprika, 1/2 garlic clove (minced), and the chopped greens of a single green onion. Stir until consistent.
    3. Mix together with the fish until the fish is finely coated in a layer of sauce.
    4. Chill until ready to serve.

    I also like mixing in small cuts of celery to give it some crunch.

    Originally, the batter was there to protect the fish from the severe heat of frying. The batter was cracked, the fish released, eaten and the batter discarded. You could do it that way.

    If it is crunch you're after wrap a crisp salad leaf around the pieces of fish as you pull them from the coat of batter.

    I use a mix of ground macadamias and almond flour. Tastes good.

    I dip firm white fish into beaten egg, then coat in grated coconut, and bake or fry in butter. Delicious! Finely chopped pecans also make a great coating.

    Tonight I dipped my fish in egg and then in crushed pork rinds. I thought it was a comparable to panko bread crumbs. Yummy and crispy. Even my picky kids liked it.
