Got another Paleo recipe that I tried last night: Paleo Pan Fried Fish!
What Is Paleo?
The modern dietary regimen known as the Paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various human species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture.
This was quite a simple meal to make…and very VERY delicious! Had it with some more Paleo Sweet Potato “Fries”
and my 4 year old daughter, Fevin, helped me get everything prepared!
4 fillets of wild caught white fish – no skin
2 eggs (I used egg-whites)
1 1/2 cups coconut flour
1 tbsp. garam masala (I didn’t have, so didn’t use)
1 tsp. sea salt (I didn’t add salt)
1 tsp. garlic powder (added just a little bit)
oil for frying — coconut oil
1. Heat up oil in a frying pan, put just enough in to coat the pan.
2. Set up two shallow casserole bowls next to each other. In one, beat the eggs. In the other, mix the flour, garam masala, sea salt, and garlic powder.
3. dip the fish fillet in the egg mixture on both sides, then dip it in the flour mixture on both sides, and put it in the pan. Repeat.
4. Cook the fish 5-7 minutes on each side (cod is a heavier fish, so a lighter fish like tilapia will not take as long – but it might, because really what we are going for is a nice, golden brown coating).

The Finished product!
Again, this was a very very simple meal to prepare. My 4 year old daughter really loved helping line the chopped sweet-potato ‘fries’ up for baking. As you can see, with simplified (and natural) ingredients, you’ve increased your “healthy” while eating a delicious meal! The Coconut Flour adds a great flavor to the fish. I was so impressed! The entire family gobbled this meal up and I think I’m slowly turning them onto the Paleo Lifestyle as well!
