An awesome, easy recipe for the gluten-free gang! Oat crusted haddock is one of those really easy dishes that actually sounds like something you’d find at a posh restaurant. Give it a try for something different…
This really is a recipe you need to save down if you’re gluten free. It tastes better than the normal ‘homemade fish and chips’ and doesn’t at all leave you feeling sluggish or dull. It’s a win win where fish and chips are concerned, and if you use haddock instead of cod, it’s a cheap nutritious meal! Infact, if you were watching the pennies even more, use pollock or any other white, meaty fish. They will all work just as well.
Oat Crusted Haddock
Ingredients Serves 2
- 2 x 120g white fish fillets
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 250g oats (substitute gluten-free where necessary)
- 4 eggs
- 50g unsalted butter
In a bowl, crack your eggs and separate your egg yolks from your egg whites. We don’t need the egg whites so pop them in the fridge and save them for the next omlette you make… (whisk your white’s like a meringue next time you make it to make the omlette extra fluffy!! Click here to find out more).
Now, with your egg yolks, place them in a bowl like above, whisk them up and ‘crack on’ with the rest of the recipe…
Put your oats in a blender and blend until they form a rough flour. Don’t worry if they’re not all even, it adds to the crunch! Add in your turmeric and blend again.
Place your oats and turmeric mix on a plate.
Take your haddock fillets and dip them generously in the egg yolks then in the oats – make sure you cover both sides (see the pictures for aids!)
Grease a baking tray and place your haddock fillets on the tray once they’ve been fully ‘battered’ with the mixes. Cook for 10-15 minutes on 180oc or gas mark 6.
Once they’re done in the oven, take out your fillets. Melt your butter in a frying pan and place on a high heat. Put your haddock into the hot pan for 2 minutes each side to brown off the oat crust and add that crunch!
Serve with some sweet potato fries and a little coriander and salt. So there you have it, oat crusted haddock! Perfection 😉
