Gluten Free Breaded Hake
I’m seriously stuffed writing this, I really enjoyed this dish and ended up eating way too much.
I have had a lot of requests for a gluten free fish and chips so here it is. I bought a gluten free white loaf in Supervalu, it wasn’t cheap at €1.99 for a very small loaf. I really must make some gluten free breads and post the recipes soon to make it cheaper on you as €1.99 for a small loaf is a total rip off. Please leave a comment if you know where to get the bread cheaper.
You can also use regular breadcrumbs if you can eat gluten, this will make the dish a lot cheaper.
Allergens : Gluten & Lactose Free
Hake Fillets Skin off – 600g (150g filled me and I’m a big lad)
Gluten Free white Loaf – 150 – 200g
Eggs – 2
Gram Flour – 100 – 150g
Fresh Ground Black Pepper – 2 tsp
Salt – 1 tsp
Sunflower Oil (if using a pan) – 75-100ml
You will need – 1 Deep fat fryer or deep non stick pan, 3 bowls, 1 plate, 1 baking tray and greaseproof paper (optional).
Pre-heat your oven to 180c GM4 and your fryer to 160 – 170c
Cut the fish into 150g sized pieces. If you are cooking for kids then I suggest you cut them into strips to make goujons.
Break the eggs into one bowl and mix really well.
Place the gram flour in another bowl and add the salt
Then place the breadcrumbs in the last one, add the pepper (make your own gluten free by putting the gluten free bread into your food processor and blitzing till crumbed)
Take a piece of fish and coat in the gram flour then dip it into the beaten egg and finally into the breadcrumbs. Pat the crumbs onto it till it is completely coated in them. Place on the plate till you finish it all.
Do this with all the fish.
Place the fish pieces in the hot oil in the fryer or pan and cook until golden brown, 1 – 2 minutes. If using the pan you will need to watch it carefully and turn it after about 3 minutes on a medium heat.
Line the baking tray with greaseproof paper then place the fish on to it. Ensure they are separated so they cook evenly.
Place in the oven for 5 – 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the pieces
If making homemade chips, turn the fryer right down to about 100c then do the chips till cooked but not coloured, remove and leave in a bowl then turn the fryer up for the fish. When you are about to serve the fish place the chips back in the fryer at 180c till they start to brown and are nice and crispy.
Hi Liam. Love fish. Want to do this for my sister in law who is celiac. Never heard of gram flour. I presume it’s available in supermarkets.
Great new site. Congratulations.
Gram Flour is made from chickpeas. I have seen it in some supermarkets. Most Asian and healthfood stores will stock it too.
Hi Liam I use the plain gf flour from Aldi. And I also use the brown gf sliced pan from Aldi, it makes great bread crumbs, use it all the time in my stuffing mixtures.
Thanks Jennifer. This will help others when making the dish.
