We pretty much only eat fish during Lent. Not because we eat meat every single day the rest of the year, but because there are always really good seafood sales during Lent, so that is pretty much the only time that we eat it.
I've been wanting to come up with a really yummy, delicious, "fried-fish/fish nugget/fish stick" type recipe without actually having to fry anything. Because I don't fry things.
The other day, I came up with a winner of a recipe! Soft, moist, flaky on the inside and crispy and flavorful on the outside. Just delicious!! And, they are gluten-free!!
The Best, Gluten-Free Oven-Baked Fish Nuggets
2 pounds swai (you could probably use another type of fish, like whitefish, tilapia, etc)
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 Parmesan cheese
salt to taste
paprika to taste
pepper to taste
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup milk
Combine dry ingredients for breading.
Combine milk and mayonnaise.
Cute fish into small strips or nuggets.
Dip each strip or nugget into milk mixture.
Coat with breading
Place on greased cookie sheet and spray tops of fish with olive oil.
Bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until fish is cooked through and topping is crispy. Be careful that you don't overcook the fish and dry them out.
