Directions

  1. Cut fish into 3-inch strips and pat dry between paper towels. Dredge well in ⅓ cup almond flour.

  2. Blend 2 cups almond flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, beer, vinegar, egg whites and pepper in a blender until smooth.

  3. Heat at least two inches of vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.

  4. Dip fish into batter with a fork making sure to coat completely. Carefully drop into hot oil, cooking only a few pieces at a time. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

  5. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately with additional malt vinegar or lemon wedges.

Notes

Recipe tip: Without the gluten, the almond flour batter wants to “float” off the fish while cooking. Egg whites bind the mixture as well as give the coating a light texture.
