Do you ever get a craving for crispy, crunchy fish sticks? This is going to become your go-to recipe when that craving hits.
Your traditional battered fish recipe usually utilizes gluten-filled flours, beer, and junky oils. Our recipe knocks that stuff off the list and sticks to all Paleo ingredients – tapioca starch, coconut flour, olive oil, and our secret ingredient – sparkling water!
My favorite way to eat this meal is with a ton of veggies on the side. I love roasting broccoli in the oven or sautéing green beans in a skillet with some bacon. Add in some roasted sweet potatoes and sliced avocado and you have a full-blown meal without too much work at all.
Tell me – how do you like to build out your meals? What are your favorite veggies to pair with fish? I’m always taking suggestions and ideas to broaden my dinner horizons!
