Crispy fish is such an iconic summer comfort food 😍 so we decided to give them a high fat and protein animal based twist 🙏
Fish sticks are typically made with leaner white fish like Cod 🍤 and you can of course swap those but we opted for sablefish aka black cod since it’s high fat and full of omegas !! Fat is fuel in this way of eating 🍽
The crumb is made from egg and chicken flour from Carnivore crisps, and it’s all married together with an mct oil Mayo Tartar sauce and crunchy onions 😉
We opted to not bread the fish to save the skin which is so healthy, but instead top it off with the crunchy crumbs 😉
To make you need:
For the fish:
6 ounces sable fish 🐠
Butter for searing or an air-fryer 😉
Thinly sliced onion (about to 1/4 large) 🧅
Lard for searing 🧈
Your favorite Mayo (2 tablespoons) – we love MCT Mayo
Pickles thinly diced 🥒
Lard for frying
1 egg 🥚
1 tablespoon chicken flour 🐓, we use carnivore crisps !
Begin by letting the fish come to room temperature, preheat the airfryer or butter in a pan. Then pat the fish dry, salt it from all sides and cook about 8 minutes.
While that’s going, heat up lard in 2 pans. In one pan, sear the slices of onion until they brown, season with salt.
In the other, make the breadcrumbs. Combine the egg and flour in a bowl and then bake like a pancake. Scramble the dough and let the bits get crispy! You may need to add more lard along the way. Optionally season with some garlic or pepper!
Next, make the tartar sauce- simply combine Mayo with some diced pickles!
Finally, assemble everything, super simple- just top the fish with the onions, sauce and crunchy crumbs 🤗
