This meal from reader Dave is the perfect fast, easy weeknight treat. You probably have all the ingredients required in your pantry right now!
- 4 fish fillets, thawed and at room temperature
- ½ cup gluten-free flour (any blend will do)
- ½ cup cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- Canola oil for frying
- One 355 mL can club soda or gluten-free beer (like Glutenberg Blonde), refrigerated
- Put enough oil in a large frying pan just so it covers the bottom. Place on stovetop and heat on medium until the oil is hot (shimmering but not smoking – about 400 degrees).
- Mix the dry ingredients together. Place about ¾ of the mixture into a wide bowl and the remaining mixture on a plate.
- Slowly add the liquid to the bowl of dry mixture until the mixture is slightly thicker than pancake batter. (You may not need the entire can of liquid.)
- Pat fish dry with paper towel.
- Dredge fish fillets in the reserve mixture on the plate and then dip into the wet mixture.
- Carefully place fish in oil. Cook two to three minutes per side.
- Serve with a slice of lemon and enjoy!
- You can customize this dish by swapping out the spices for different ones. However, don’t leave out the salt or baking powder.
- This dish pairs perfectly with these oven-baked fries.

There’s nothing more Maritime than a good feast of fish and chips. Plus, preparing it at home means no concerns about cross-contamination. This recipe makes enough for four people and can easily be scaled back or doubled.
- Four medium-sized russet potatoes
- Eight haddock fillets
- ½ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
- ½ cup gluten-free Bisquick
- One can of 7-Up or gluten-free beer (like Glutenberg Blonde)
- Sea salt
- Oil for frying
- Heat deep fat fryer to 374 degrees.
- While fryer is heating up, cut potatoes into sticks.
- Once fryer is hot, place fries in basket and place in fryer for 8 to 10 minutes (depending on how big the fries are).
- Heat oven to about 200 degrees. When the French fries are cooked, place them on a cookie sheet, season with salt, and keep them warm in the oven.
- Turn fryer down to about 320 degrees.
- Mix the gluten-free flour and Bisquick together. Then, stir in the liquid until a thick batter is formed. If you need more liquid, add a little bit of water.
- Dip the haddock fillets in the batter and then carefully drop directly into the oil.
- After five minutes, use a large, flat spoon to remove the fish.
- Serve and enjoy!
- Using a fresh can or bottle of 7-Up is important! The carbonation keeps the batter light.
- You can also use this batter for onion rings or chicken wings. Check your deep fryer’s manual for cooking time.
- Round out this meal with homemade tartar sauce.
