Gluten-Free Deep Fried Fish

My husband and I love fish and chips we go to a local restaurant here in town that serve pretty amazing gluten-free fish and chips and I really thought perhaps I would like to try this at home, sooo with a little of this and a little of that I have mastered a batter that’s pretty darn good. My husband said it tastes just like the restaurant we frequent and that must mean he really likes it.

  • 1 cup Brown Rice Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3/4-1 cup Warm Water
  • 1 dash Salt
  • 1 dash Pepper or to taste
  • 1/2 cup Brown Rice Flour for dredging
  • 1/4 milk I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 1-2 pounds Cod or Halibut


  • In a small bowl combine 1 cup brown rice flour, baking soda, salt, pepper and water.
  • You do not want mixture to thick so add water a little at a time to ensure mixture gets to the perfect consistency. Make sure you pat fish completely dry.
  • In an assembly line dip fish into milk then flour and finally the batter.
  • You can use a deep fryer and fry your fish to the directions of the manufacturer or you can use a deep stock pot and fry on the stove which is what I did using vegetable oil.
  • Fry for about 5 minutes or until golden.
