Keto Fried Fish In Whey Protein Powder#FishFriday

This is crisp, flaky, low carb, gluten free version of fried fish, which we would normally use flour to coat the fish. This keto version is delicious on it’s own right, perfect for an easy, yet super comforting keto meal!

Serves One
For The Marination 

200 Grams Fish Fillet 
¼ Teaspoon Turmeric Powder 
¼ Teaspoon Red Chilly Powder 
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice 
Salt to taste 
For The Coating 
½ An Egg - beaten 
Unflavored Whey Protein Powder - as required 
Coconut Oil - as required for frying

Marinate the fish with all the given ingredients and refrigerate it for at least 20 minutes.
Heat coconut oil in a cast iron skillet for shallow frying.
Dip the marinated fish in egg then sprinkle whey protein powder on each side of the fish, pressing it lightly so that the fish is well coated with it on each side.
Fry it on medium flame till golden on each side. Just poured the remaining egg on top (did not want to waste it).
Enjoy with salad at the sides.

    1. I know a lot of folks who follow a keto diet or are gluten intolerant so this would be a great recipe for them! Plus, bonus: added protein! Great idea, Sneha!

    2. What an interesting substitute for flour! It looks delicious.

    3. This is an interesting recipe. I have never worked with whey protein but I do like the fact that this recipe can be used with any kind of fish.
