Gluten free fish & chips!

Hoorah, it worked!!

A bit of an experiment as this was the first time I have cooked proper fish shop style battered fish, let along a gluten free version, but the result was fantastic, I honestly don't think anyone would have guessed it was gluten free!

Seb naturally adored it and polished off two cod steaks - a fantastic result, I'm one happy mummy tonight.


For anyone interested here's the recipe:

240ml fizzy water
160g Dove's farm white bread flour
2 tablespoons of sunflower oil
2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
1 teaspoon of paprika
salt & pepper
2 egg whites.


1) mix all ingredients together excluding the egg whites (using an electric whisk for best results)
2) beat egg whites until forming soft peaks
3) gently fold egg whites into batter when ready to use

meanwhile dry fish steaks as much as possible and then coat in a small amount of plain white GF flour seasoned with salt and pepper, shake off excess then dip into batter mixture until fully coated, then fry at a hot heat, preferably in a deep fat fryer.

I think this batter would also work really well for chicken and onion rings, I'll let you know when I try!
