This dish is absolute perfection!
I was actually going to title this recipe "The Most Perfect Fried Cod," because it seriously is one of the BEST fried cod fish I've ever made! The coating is super crispy, and the cod did not dry out at all! Even though the fish is perfect by itself, the dijon aioli is a great component that adds amazing flavor and a slight spiciness to the dish. I could honestly eat this every single day!!
Let's get to cooking!
Crispy Gluten-Free Fried Cod with a Dijon Aioli Sauce (serves 4)
- 4 cod fillets
- 1/2 cup WEDO banana flour
- 1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- pinch of cayenne pepper
- salt and pepper, to taste
- avocado oil, to fry
Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
Heat avocado oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Once hot, add all four cod fillets. Fry for about 4 minutes per side (you will know the fish is done when it starts flaking.)
Serve cod over salad, top with aioli, garnish with a fresh lemon slice, and enjoy!
