Pan Fried Cod


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 4 6-ounce cod or other white-fleshed fish fillets
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (or coconut flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  1. Whisk the egg and coconut in a medium bowl; add the cod and set aside to soak.

  2. Using a shallow plate combine almond meal, red pepper flakes and salt then mix together with a fork.

  3. Heat 1 inch of oil in a heavy-bottomed sauté pan or cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Remove the fish from the milk mixture and dredge in the almond flour mixture, turning to coat.

  4. Fry in the hot oil until golden, 2 to 4 minutes per side.

  5. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain; season with any additional sea salt and pepper.
