Keto Fish and Chips
What’s more traditionally British than five o’clock tea or hot fish and chips from a street vendor or local shop? Going back in history to the 17th century, it was a deconstructed recipe for traditional Jewish way of making fish.
The crunchy coat of eggs, flour and cheese makes a certain vacuum with fish inside allowing it to get cooked like in a steamer, therefore when you make a bite you still tasting that perfect flavor of soft fish meat.
In the beginning, Fish and Chips were served wrapped in newspaper, now many restaurants that care for its visuality trying to go back to its original look by using edible paper with non toxic prints on it – recreating the aesthetics. Try using paper cones stated in tall glass for making an extravagant appearance for common dish.
For the fish, you can use any type of white fish such as cod. Make sure it’s boneless. The most important thing to keep it low carb is the breading. The low carb fried fish batter we make consists of Parmesan cheese, almond flour and egg as well as other herbs and spices. You can use coconut flour too.
For the chips, we keep it simple by baking zucchini slices in the oven. You can also try this zucchini fries recipe too!
Other low carb veggies substitutes for potatoes can be made as chips on a low carb diet are parsley root, kohlrabi, turnip, swede, eggplant, radish, and jicama. Depending on how strict you are on keto, you might need to check the portion size and carb content of these veggies. The best keto-friendly option would still be zucchini.
Oils with high smoke points that can be used for deep frying include avocado oil, coconut oil, and lard.
For dipping sauce, you can try homemade mayonnaise or ketchup.
