Friday Night Fish Fry

Paleo Fish Fry

Paleo, Gluten-Free, Minimal Ingredients, Allergy Friendly – Dinner


Hi, Mama! Here, in Wisconsin, it is a Friday night tradition to go out for a fish fry {or stay home for a Paleo Fish Fry} and a beer… or three. The beer is not required, but after a long week dealing with kids {and husband}, three beers with dinner is justified. {Right?}

Maybe a couple of shots of tequila? Hey, Mama, I don’t judge!!

Shortly after our second child was born my husband and I vowed not to take our feral children out to eat until they are well into their thirties. Maybe thirty was a bit drastic, but at the time I could think a million things I’d rather do than ever take them out of the house again.

Let’s just say, we had coats on, to-go boxes ready, and paid the bill before our food ever arrived.

So, to avoid taking our feral children out in public, I brought the tradition to us! {minus the beer}.

8-inch skillet


  1. Heat coconut oil in an 8-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Allow coconut oil to heat up for ten minutes.

  2. Place fish fillets (one at a time) into your flour mixture. Coat both sides of fish graciously. Transfer to a plate until ready to fry.

  3. Place fillets into your heated skillet and fry two minutes per side, four minutes total.

  4. Transfer to a paper towel to let any excess grease drip off.

Recipe Notes

  • Serve with a side of homemade tartar sauce or your favorite Paleo dip.



  • If your fish is not coating; dip fish into a whisked egg or wet with water.
