Prefer gluten free, but want crispy, golden panfried fish? Potato Crusted Halibut is a lovely, light entree that’s not only gluten free but a quick and easy weeknight meal that satisfies crispy cravings.
Potato flakes are a great alternative to bread crumbs or cracker crumbs in most instances. They fry up crisp just like bread crumbs, are neutral in taste and can take on herbs and spices, letting the flavour of your fish shine. For this recipe I used thin halibut fillets that cooked up flaky in minutes. I also served the Potato Crusted Halibut with my Tomato Relish, which is a wonderful, fresh accompaniment.
One of my goals for this blog was to showcase how potato flakes can be used as a coating/breading but also to point out that it’s not limited to fish or breading for that matter. It can be used most places that bread crumbs are used like breaded chicken cutlets, meatballs, salmon cakes or thickening soup like my Broccoli Cheddar Soup So maybe you’re looking for gluten free, or maybe just want a change? Remember potato flakes are for more than just mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
