Fried fish and tartar sauce
Coconut flour is expensive, but I used a very light dusting of it here, with good results. Though the recipe uses coconut flour and oil, the resulting dish is not very "coconutty". I was surprised at how mild it was. I used the tartar sauce recipe from Nourishing Traditions, which was delicious.
1 1/2 pounds sole filets
1 tsp. or so filtered water
1/2 cup or less coconut flour
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup or more coconut oil
Beat the egg with the water. Mix the coconut flour with the salt and pepper and place in a fine mesh sieve or sifter over a plate. Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
In batches, dip the filets in the egg wash. Place on a clean plate and lightly dust with the coconut flour on both sides. Fry in the oil until golden, then flip. This took moments for these very thin filets, so keep a close watch. Place on a plate in a warm oven while you finish frying the rest of the fish.
