  1. YUM! Even my kiddos and non-fish-eating hubby liked it. Served it with fresh lemon. Super easy and super tasty. Thanks for another great recipe!

    1. Nikoo – You can do a mixture of tapioca flour and coconut flour (half and half but a little heavy on the tapioca flour). Or sweet potato flour would probably work, too.

  2. I had a problem with the fish soaking up all the coconut oil, so I had to keep adding coconut oil to the pan. But it was very tasty. Probably just my inexperience frying fish.
