    Gluten-free Fish and Chips

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    English-style fish and chips are one of my all-time favorites. One of the dishes I've missed the most ever since going gluten-free. I've been discovering new uses for Rice Chex as a gluten-free breading, and this recipe for gluten-free fish and chips is one of the results. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    1½ quarts vegetable oil, for frying
    2 pounds halibut or firm white fish, cut in  portions
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    ½ cup potato starch
    ½ cup tapioca flour
    1 cup rice flour
    2 cups crushed Rice Chex
    1 quart egg wash (equal parts whole eggs and milk, mixed well)
    6 lemons halves, for serving

    Directions:
    Heat the oil in to 375 degrees F. in a Dutch oven or deep frying pot.

    Rinse fish and dab dry with paper towels. Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper.

    In a mixing bowl, combine and mix rice flour, tapioca flour and potato starch.

    Dip the fish in flour mixture and shake off any excess.

    Dip the fish into the egg wash and then the powdered Rice Chex. Add more Chex as needed to make sure fish is well-coated.

    Repeat the process with each fillet, then carefully drop the coated fish in the fryer.

    Cook the fish in batches until golden brown on both sides, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from the fryer and place on paper towels to drain excess oil. Serve lemons on the side.

    Serve with chips and tartar sauce.

    English-style Chips:

    Ingredients:
    4 large russet potatoes

    Directions:
    Heat 3-inches of the oil in a deep fryer to 325 degrees F.

    Peel the potatoes and cut them into chips, about the size of your index finger. Put the potatoes in the oil. Fry the chips for 2 to 3 minutes; they should not be crisp or fully cooked at this point. Remove the chips with a spider strainer or slotted spoon, to a paper towel-lined platter to drain.

    Raise oil temperature to 375 degrees F.

    Carefully put the chips in the hot oil. and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until crispy and brown.

    Note:
    I like to do the first part of the chips first, then cook the fish, then finish the chips, as I have a smaller fryer.

    If your fryer is large enough to accommodate both the fish and the chips without lowering the temperature, then you can add the battered fish into the oil on top of the chips, and cook them together. Fry the fish and chips for about 4 to 5 minutes until crispy and brown.

    This is a real simple side dish with little prep that’s both fragrant and festive. I like using acorn squash because they’re small enough to serve everyone their own half, but this recipe is great sliced or in chunks. This version is mildly sweet but is easily downplayed with less sugar, or sweetened with more syrup.
    Ingredients:
    2 acorn squash, halved and seeded
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    3 tablespoons softened butter
    1 tablespoon maple syrup
    2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
    1 teaspoon ground cloves
    Pinch of salt and pepper
    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 400° F.
    Arrange squash on a baking sheet.
    In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, butter, syrup, and spices. Rub mixture over the cut sides of the squash and bake skin-side down for up to 1 hour. Remove when squash is easily pierced with a fork.
    Serve warm.

    Celiac.com 08/01/2013 - Got a seafood lover in your life? Want a guaranteed smash hit for your next romantic dinner?
    Scallops are one of those dishes that will delight most seafood lovers, and win you extra romantic points at the same time. They are also one of those dishes that usually carry a hefty price tag when you dine out. That's one of the reasons I like to make them at home.
    With a little planning and prep, you can use high dollar ingredients like scallops to deliver a delicious, romantic dinner for probably less than the cost of a single entree at your favorite restaurant.
    These grilled scallops are a snap to make. They dazzle they eye and delight the palate. Give them a try next time you need to dazzle your dinner guests.
    Ingredients:
    Bacon, preferably high quality
    Fresh large scallops
    Olive oil
    1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    2 teaspoons kosher salt
    Dash of pepper
    Directions:
    Boil bacon strips 5 minutes. Remove and dab dry on a paper towel.
    Toss scallops with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Make sure they're not too oily, just enough to coat them.
    Wrap scallops with dried bacon. Put 3 scallops per skewer, with lemon slices in between. You can also use toothpicks in a pinch and do one scallop and a bit of lemon per toothpick. Season scallops with salt, pepper, and paprika.
    Sear scallops on a medium-high grill and then remove and finish under the broiler, making sure the bacon is well cooked on all sides. Cover ends of the skewers in foil as needed to prevent burning under broiler. Remove when golden.
    Serve with a very simply spiced dipping sauce of mayonnaise with a bit of chili paste, and a dash of lime juice and chopped cilantro.

    Celiac.com 01/14/2014 - Baked chicken offers an easy, healthy alternative to frying, and can produce delicious results.
    This version uses crushed Rice Chex cereal in place of bread crumbs, and adds olive oil and a variety of seasonings to deliver a memorable meal.
    Ingredients:
    4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    ¾ cup crushed Rice Chex
    ¾ cup cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon garlic powder
    ½ teaspoon onion powder
    ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    ¼ teaspoon paprika
    Directions:
    Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
    In a bowl, blend the olive oil and garlic.
    In a separate bowl, mix the crushed Rice Chex, Parmesan cheese, basil, thyme, oregano, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic and onion powders.
    Dip each chicken breast in the oil and garlic until well-coated, then in the bread crumb Parmesan mixture. Coat chicken well.
    Place coated chicken in baking dish, and top with extra coating mix.
    Bake until chicken is no longer pink inside, and juices run clear, about 30 minutes.
