Larrys battered fish
1-2 pounds fish fillets or steaks fresh or frozen
1/2 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup oil Thaw frozen fish. Cut fish into portions. Combine milk and salt. Dip fish in milk and roll in almond flour. Place fish in a single layer on a well greased baking pan. Pour oil over fish. Bake in an extremely hot oven, 500 degrees, for 10-15 minutes or until fish are brown and flake easily when tested with a fork. I used cod, for the oil I used olive oil. With the blanched almond flour, the fish pieces might not turn brown, but they should be done in 10-15 minutes. Reply Forward
