Gluten-free fried fish? Yes please! Tilapia is a white fish that has a very mild fish taste, and in this recipe it is coated in eggs and potato starch, then fried, to give it a nice crust. Finish it off with a simple veggie sauce that adds balanced flavors and nice texture. This filling, gluten free, and Kosher for Passover fish dish is a real winner!
