When I traveled to England, one of my very favorite thing to do was go and get Fish and Chips. I love to make them at home (not as good as the real thing) but it is a dish that every member of my family will eat, that was until Underwater Samurai was diagnosed with Celiac disease. So off I went on a cooking adventure to try and find an alternative to a flour based batter.
In comes Attune foods who contacted me to sample and review some of their cereals. Here is what they sent:
Uncle Sam Original, Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice- Gluten Free Cereal (which is what I will be using in this recipe), and Erewhon Corn Flakes Cereal.
This is what Attune says about their cereal: “We make foods to help you feel your best everyday from the inside out, centered on your digestive health. Simple ingredients and simply made, we believe what matters most is what’s inside.”
I put my pickest eater to the test and asked him to try and give his opinion about these cereals, and here is what he said …
Everyone enjoyed the cereals, even myself.. they were simple, tasted good and I was not hungry an hour later like I usually am with most cereals.
But here is the thing. I wanted to do something more than write a cereal review – yes, it’s good cereal, but let’s get creative and do something else. Back to Fish and Chips.
This dish was moderately easy to prepare and every person in my family ate it. My husband was psyched to have something that resembled his old gluten way of eating, so everyone was happy. Here is what you will need…
– Three large baking Potatoes
– Olive Oil and Salt
– 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
– 1-2 lbs. of Firm White Fish Filets.. I used Cod.- cut into pieces
– 3 eggs
– 3 cups of Attune Crispy Brown Rice Cereal or rice cereal of your choice
– Salt and pepper
And here’s how you make it:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Wash and peel potatoes and cut them in one inch slices, place them in a bowl and toss with Olive oil, salt, and parmesan cheese making sure they are fully coated.
3. Place cut and seasoned potatoes on a baking sheet (I cover mine with parchment to make cleaning easier), and place on the top rack of the oven for 15 minutes. Turn them and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes (read step 5 below, though, because you can’t just leave them to cook).
4. While the Potatoes are baking, prepare your fish. Cut the fish into pieces and set aside. Beat eggs and place in a low, flat dish so you can dip the fish. Take the cereal, lightly crush with your hands, and place in a shallow dish or plate.
Dip the fish into the egg mixture and then into the cereal, making sure to fully coat each piece. Salt and pepper to taste.
5. Place a cooling rack onto a baking sheet and then put the coated fish pieces on the rack. Place the fish in the hot oven with the potatoes for the last 12 minutes on the bottom rack of the oven.
Goes well with squeezed lemon, malt vinegar, tartar or cocktail sauce.
Attune Foods sent me free samples of their products, I was not paid and they were not guaranteed a positive review. All of the opinions in this review are my own.
