In the 10 years since my celiac disease diagnosis, I have only come across the occasion for gluten free fried fish while eating out twice. You may think – good, fried food is bad for you. True, I won’t argue with you there. But fried food is something that I think people that can still eat gluten don’t really think about.
Even finding a restaurant that has a safe deep fryer for french fries can be a challenge. So finding a place that has gluten free Beer Battered Fish or gluten free Onion Rings is nearly impossible.
This gluten free Beer Battered Fish dish actually comes together quite quickly. Quick enough that it can be prepared on a weeknight. If you have time to bake some french fries, you have enough time to fry up some fish. The fish actually takes less time to cook than the french fries.
I’ve made this with both tilapia and cod fish, and my family definitely prefers the cod. It has less of a ‘fishy’ flavor, which no one here really likes.
Don’t discard the oil after frying this gluten free Beer Battered Fish.
Did you know that you can reuse your deep-frying oil? I often pour mine through a sieve lined with paper towel to remove anything that has sunk to the bottom, and store it in a jar in the fridge until the next time I want to deep fry something. Since you used this for fish, I wouldn’t recommend making gluten free Old-Fashioned Doughnuts in it. Instead, you can use it to make:
- Deep Fried Home-Fries
- Gluten Free Chinese Chicken Balls
- Crispy Gluten Free Onion Rings
- Gluten Free Fried Chicken KFC Style
