  • Ingredients
  • 500 g fish fillets without the skin any fish would be ok here
  • 2 slices gluten-free bread check the ingredients to check soya free if this is needed, 'whizzed' into breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp gluten-free flour
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tsp dried herbs
  • Grind of pepper
  • Oil for frying


  1. Method
  2. Place the breadcrumbs, pepper and herbs in a wide-topped bowl, then do the same for the flour and egg so that you have 3 bowls in a row
  3. Cut the fish fillets into 'finger' sized pieces
  4. Place the fish pieces one at a time into each bowl, starting with the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs...making sure they are coated before moving on to the next bowl
  5. When coated with breadcrumbs place on a plate until ready to cook. At this point you could cover them and place them in the fridge, or wrap them and freeze them
  6. Heat your frying pan to a medium heat and add a glug of oil
  7. Place your fish into the pan and cook for approx. 5 minutes on each side. Try and cook the sides too to make them nice and golden
  8. Serve with your choice of vegetables, potatoes and a dip if you fancy (or good old tomato ketchup in our house!)
