Low carb fish and Chips

In this low carb fish and chips recipe, the crust is gluten free and low carb. Fish and chips is one of my favorite comfort foods that I can never seem to get enough of. I was fortunate enough to live in New Zealand for a few years. Fish and Chips was a traditional dish available as a Friday night special at many local restaurants. I always looked forward to Fridays to enjoy some freshly made fish and chips.


Recipe first seen on Indian Scene Magazine.

In a traditional fish and chips recipe, the fish is made with a thick beer battered crust. Its served with French fries that are high in carbs. In this low carb fish and chips recipe, the crust is gluten free and low carb.

In this low carb fish and chips recipe the chips are made from Rutabaga. This is a root vegetable that originated as a cross between Cabbage and Turnip. 1 cup of boiled cubed rutabaga contains only 51 calories and 12 grams of carbohydrates, 3.1 grams of fiber. Making the net carbs 9 grams. 1 cup of boiled potatoes contains 136 calories and 31 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber. Which makes it 28.8 grams of net carbs. In this low carb fish and chips recipe, Rutabaga makes this a perfect lower carb option with similar flavor and texture as French fries. It is also a healthier option compared to French fries as it’s baked in the oven with a small amount of oil.

Dare I say these are delicious!!!

Brush the strips with the above mix place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, or until the strips are golden brown.
