Paleo Fish Sticks



So going over some classics I have not had in years and sticking with a keto/Plaleo diet I decided I missed fish sticks. Found a few recipes and modified them and gave myself options.

For the pork rinds I suggest either BaconHeir Pork Panko and season to taste to choose your favorite seasoned ones and pulse in a food processor for panko. I personally tried with Epic for more crunch, and 4505 is smoother better tasting. Alternatively you can use NutCrumbs or seasoned almond meal.

3-3.5oz Pork Panko (grind pork rinds in a food processor)
1lb Cod Fillet cut into "Fish Stick" shaped strips
1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2tsp Black Pepper
3 Large Egg
3 tsp Water

1. Preheat oven to 400F and prepare a rimmed baking sheet slightly greased
2. In a small bowl mix the coconut flour, salt, pepper
3. Place the ground pork rinds (season to taste if you wish or use preseasoned), in bag
4. In a bowl whisk the Eggs and water, one by one take the pieces of fish, roll lightly in the flour mixture , dip in the egg mixture, put in the bag and give a shake then place on the greased baking sheet
5. Bake 20-25 mins til lightly golden and then remove and serve immediately. (I do some extra for crispiness)

Bonus, if you have extra breading, flour mix, and eggs, combine and maybe a bit more egg and make hush puppies.
I loved these with some Primal Kitchen Ketchup

This looks delicious!  I fried up some flounder last night but dipped it in gluten-free flour with a little bit of bread crumbs from hubby’s Canyon House gluten-free whole grain bread, so it was not Keto.   It also was delicious.

Bit of a trick I have learned with using Pork Panko Breading, toast the breading in a skillet til it just starts to turn darker and is a bit more crispy before using. It makes the breading crunchier and give baked versions more crunch akin to frying.
Working on a Chicken Version but trying to improve the egg wash/batter.
