Orange and Herb Battered Fish

My husband recently brought to my attention that I’ve been blogging about paleo treats too much. Too many paleo treats? I think not. But it was a bug in my ear so here’s a non-sweet paleo treat for you all. Why is it a treat?

1. Because fish is delicious.

2. Because you will want to eat this for every dinner.

3. Because IT’S SOOOO GOOD!


Orange and Herb Battered Fish

1 pkg. frozen mahi mahi pieces or whole steaks (trader joes)
1 c. potato starch
zest of 1 orange
any herbs or spices you desire… I’ve used dill, oregano, thyme, parsley, etc. or you could use chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder
salt and pepper
1/2 c. coconut oil
1 egg

  1. Defrost the fish in your fridge overnight or in a bowl of cool water.
  2. Remove fish from the bag and pat dry with paper towels
  3. in a small bowl whisk egg, set aside
  4. In a larger bowl, mix potato starch, orange zest, and various spices until well combined
  5. Place fish in egg to coat. Remove the fish from the bowl, draining the excess egg off and place the pieces in the potato starch mix.
  6. Toss to coat
  7. In a skillet or soup pot heat coconut oil on medium-high heat until very hot, but not smoking.
  8. Add the pieces of fish, one at a time  (the oil should sizzle when the fish goes in, if it doesn’t, your oil isn’t hot enough).
  9. Turn the pieces of fish to fry the other half. Keep frying both sides until they begin to turn yellow-gold.
  10. Serve with roasted or grilled veggies, a slice of orange, and a dipping sauce of coconut aminos, sesame oil, and rice vinegar.
