Breaded fish is a Latin dish that can be enjoyed anytime of the year.  It is crispy on the outside and tender and juicy in the inside.  I have enjoyed this dish in Veracruz, Mexico where there is a plethora of seafood.  Enjoy this entree with your favorite salsa and sides or just squeeze lime over the breaded filet.

Servings 4


  • 4 Fish Fillets such as cod or talapia
  • 2 cups gluten free bread crumbs
  • 1 cup gluten free flour
  • 2 egg whites lightly beaten with 2oz water
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp paprika


  • Heat half of the oil in a large non-stick skillet over the stove top on low heat. Meantime set up a coating station in the following order. 
  • One large plate with the flour, next to a large shallow bowl with the beaten egg in it, side by side with a large plate filled with the bread crumbs. (keep flours close by should you need more).
  • Turn the stove heat up to medium. Rinse the fish with water and pat off excess water. Season the fish with salt & spices.
  • Dredge each side of a fish filet in the flour, then run it through the egg wash, then dredge each side in the bread crumbs. Now it is ready to go into the heated skillet. 
  • Cook each side until golden brown about 3 to 5 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of the filets. Once you have turned over the filets add the remaining oil. 
  • Plate up the filets with wedges of lime and serve it up with your favorite salsa and sides.
