Crispy Pan Fried Fish

Our favorite way to eat fresh fish:

  • 4 fish filets (trout, redfish, red snapper, flounder, or any white fish)
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup milk with 1 teaspoon coconut vinegar stirred in to create “buttermilk”)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup corn meal or seasoned fish fry mixture
  • 1/3 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash cayenne pepper, optional
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
  • Fresh lemon juice (juice of 1-2 lemons)

Soak filets in buttermilk and mix all flours and spices together. Dredge filets in flour mixture, pressing the mixture into the fish; turn and dredge other side.

Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil on medium heat in a medium sized skillet. Place fillets in hot skillet and cook until light brown on one side. While turning, add the other 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and brown on other side, or until fish is opaque and flakes easily. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over fish. Serve immediately!
