Old Bay Fish Fry

Who doesn’t love fried fish?  It’s arguably one of the best ways to cook fish says my inner 5 year old self.

But seriously, I don’t think I ever grew out of my fish stick loving days.  That’s why I make grown-up versions of my childhood favorite.

Don’t let the golden brown, crispy coating fool you, these fried fish fillets are completely keto low carb and do not contain any wheat flour in the batter!

Instead, we use Almond Flour as a base to make these delicious pieces of fish.

To give this fish fry amazing flavors, we used Bay Seasoning in the batter along with some parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and a little red pepper.

You might be wondering why we use sparkling water and the reason is that we have found sparkling water, or soda water, creates a light and airy batter that fries up beautifully.

Now, I don’t know about you but what is fried fish without some tartar sauce?

Since store bought tartar sauce contains carbs found in relish, we decided to include a keto low carb tartar sauce recipe that is so simple and easy to make you can whip it up in minutes.

So how about it?!  Try this old bay fish fry, we would love to know what you think!
