This one is for the kids! Ok…I won’t lie, I eat more than the kids do! These are delicious and another frugal way to get some fish into your body!
I’m a HUGE fan (and so are my kids) of these chicken nuggets. They are delicious and freeze really well too. So, I used some of the ingredients from the recipe and adjusted it to make Fish Nuggets or Bites…whatever you want to call it! The first time trying it…it was a HIT! The kids didn’t even know it was fish! Haha! Now they are a weekly thing we make together. The kids love helping with this one!
Hope you enjoy!
- 3 cans of wild-caught Salmon or Tuna ( I use a combo of both)
- 3 large eggs
- 1 ts onion powder
- 1 ts garlic powder
- 1/4 c + 1/2 c almond flour
- 1/2 c shredded coconut
- 1/2 c of fat of choice (coconut oil/lard/tallow)
- salt and pepper to taste
1. In a food processor combine 1/4 c almond flour, 1/2 c shredded coconut and some salt/pepper. Pulse a few times till the shredded coconut becomes crumb-size. Set aside on a plate. This is the coating.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the fish, 1/2 c almond flour, onion & garlic powders, eggs, and some salt/pepper. Mix it with your hands until everything has been incorporated. The mixture should be wet enough from the eggs to mold into nugget shapes. If not, add another egg.
3. In a saute pan (or 2 saute pans), melt the coconut oil or your fat of choice over medium heat.
4. Take about 2 tablespoons worth of the fish mixture and roll into the shape of a ball. Drop it into the almond/coconut mixture and roll the fish ball around with your fingers. Make sure it’s completely coated.
5. Repeat with the rest of the fish mixture. Place in the saute pan and cook on each side until nice and brown. I use 2 saute pans and add 1/4 coconut oil to each
6. Enjoy! I mix up some mustard and honey to make honey mustard for us to dip! Delicious!!!
