    I’ve never seen plaice at Whole Foods, but Dover was cheap and worked really well. One of my favorites!

    Does this work with cod?

    Can this be baked and get the same effect, possibly coat with coconut oil and just flip half way through?

    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!

    Hi my husband is allergic to nuts therefore what can I substitute the almond flour with? Thanks

      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.

    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.
