OK, I LOVE LOVE LOVE fried fish, and Fries. I have a low carb replacement for you. This is for deep frying, and is so yummy!! I use Flax meal, and it is very similar in texture to cornmeal.
Hot Sauce (optional)
Tilapia fillets or your favorite fish fillets.
I used 2 eggs and 1/4 cup each of the flax/almond/parm and that was enough to coat 7 good sized fillets.
Mix first 3 ingredients together. Mix eggs and optional Hot sauce (I recommend Frank's Hot Sauce). Dip the fish in the eggs, shake off excess, then coat with the flax mixture. Deep fry in Canola or Peanut oil.
Each piece of fish has 2 net carbs.
There are 2 options for "fries." I believe Nursec was the one who posted the idea to deep fry frozen green beans until they are brown. I just threw them in the oil. They do indeed taste like fries! Nursec posted a fry seasoning on here somewhere, but I just used my french fry seasoning, or just some salt would be good when they come out.
Another option is to make zuccini fries. Cut zucchini into fry shapes, and dredge them in the coating recipe, above, and deep fry them.
I would fry the veggies first, and put them in the oven to keep warm while you're frying the fish. That way the veggies won't taste fishy.
If you don't want to fry everything. You could roast veggies. Roasted Broccolli and cauliflower are great together. I roast them until they are getting really brown in spots. They'll have a nice nutty, sweet flavor when they come out. Salt them with some sea salt. I like a lot of salt, but I know that's not healthy.
Have a salad, or make some creamy low carb cole slaw with it.
