Gluten Free Crispy Fried Fish

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by adiadv1

I've only tried tilapia, but any type of fish will work. Before frying the fish, I fry potatoes and onion strips in the oil. This batter also works well for shrimp, chicken, cheese sticks and veggies.

This was a darn good recipe for gluten-free. I used gluten-free all purpose flour plus 1/2 tsp baking powder. The batter is thin initially but it does thicken as it stands. I also added a teaspoon of salt in addition to the Old Bay. They fried beautifully. Yum.
