Hello!!! I just had the best weekend soaking up the sun with great company! I spent an entire evening and day sans baby and hubby and enjoyed my time at a beautiful lakeside cabin with my girlfriend. We spent the evening on a patio overlooking the lake and woke up the next day bright and early to enjoy a hot cup of coffee on the dock in the early morning sunshine. It was absolute bliss! I feel like a new woman but Monday came too fast as always. Swimming with the fishes one minute and preparing them for dinner the next. Does that make me a sadist…. haha. Nonetheless this recipe was great! I rarely have fish although I know how great it is to include in my diet so I finally decided to give it a try. Frozen fish sticks are loaded with unnecessary additives and unknown ingredients so I opted for a homemade version. And what are fish sticks without tartar?? But sadly store bought tartar is also loaded with fat and processed ingredients, so this greek yogurt tartar sauce was a win win for flavor and nutrients! Give it a try and let me know what you think!!
1 1/2 lb Cod Fillets or fish of choice
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 egg whites
1 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
coconut oil for oiling pan
Tar Tar Sauce:
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 3/4 cup greek yogurt
- 1 Tbsp sweet pickle relish
- 1 Tbsp minced onion
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp course grain mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
1.Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Cut the fish into desired size strips.
2.Place the flour in a medium bowl and season with the salt and pepper. Place the egg whites in another bowl and beat until frothy, about 30 seconds. Combine the parmesan and bread crumbs in a third bowl.
3. Coat the salmon pieces in the seasoned flour and pat to remove any excess flour. Dip the floured salmon in the egg whites and then into the parmesan mixture, gently pressing the mixture into the fish. Place the breaded salmon pieces on a liberally oiled baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
