Gluten Free Fish Fry

Updated: Jun 18

Crispy golden Catfish and Tilapia fillets fried to perfection and 100% gluten free!

A southern tradition in the United States, fish fry is a get together either hosted by church groups, at family reunions, or just for fun! The star, obviously, is the fried fish, which normally is catfish or tilapia.


Having the perfect batter is the difference between a good fish fry and, well... let’s just say: a less successful one. Achieving that crispy golden brown outer crust is important and I have come up with a simple recipe that will help you get that desired crispiness on your first try!


I will show you two different fish batters: one for catfish and another for tilapia. You can pick and choose which one you like the best. You could either do all catfish fillet, all tilapia fillets, or a combination of both. Your call!


Are you ready?


Let’s make it!


Prep time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves 4 to 6 people


INGREDIENTS


For Catfish Fry Batter

  • 1 pound of catfish fillets

  • 1 cup of Corn Meal

  • 1/4 cup of Pillsbury Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend

  • 3 eggs

  • 1/2 tablespoon of Corn Starch

  • 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Powder

  • 1 tablespoon of salt

  • 1/2 tablespoon of black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder


For Tilapia Fry Batter

  • 1 pound of tilapia fillets

  • 1 cup of Pillsbury Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend

  • 1/4 cup of Corn Meal

  • 3 eggs

  • 1/2 tablespoon of Corn Starch

  • 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Powder

  • 1 tablespoon of salt

  • 1/2 tablespoon of black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder


Other Ingredients

  • 4 cups of vegetable oil

  • 2 limes

  • 2 lemons


Method

  1. Preheat the oil in a cast iron pot over medium high heat.

  2. In a bowl or deep baking dish mix all the dry ingredients together. Set aside.

  3. In a second bowl or deep baking dish whisk the eggs well.

  4. Once the oil is preheated, start working on the fish.

  5. Using one hand, work one fish fillet at a time. Dip the filet in the flour. Coat well on both sides. Followed by dipping the fillet in the eggs. Coat both sides then dip the fillet in the flour once more. Gently drop the fillet in the preheated oil. You can cook two fillets at the same time. Do not over crowd the pot.

  6. Cook for 4 minutes, turning once halfway.

  7. Remove from heat and place cook fillets on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the extra grease.

  8. Serve with lemons and limes. Garnish with fresh parsley.
