A couple of years ago, I found a similar grain-free fish sticks recipe that gave me visions of delicious possibilities. I long-since stopped buying those somewhat tasty boxed fish stick varieties with chopped fish parts, knowing full well that not much nutrition is found in them. And, I am still adjusting to gluten-free breading, dreaming of the day our guts are so healed that we can eat wheat again….Until then almond meal serves us well.
This grain-free fish sticks recipe is so yummy that you really won’t miss the wheat, I guarantee it! You can adjust the ingredients to fit your family’s dietary needs. The almond meal is what makes this recipe grain-free.
A side note: I buy our fish (and most all of our meat) through Zaycon Fresh Foods, which, if you don’t know what that is, it is a meat supply which comes straight from the meat processor, who takes it live from the farmer. The farms used do not use artificial hormones and you skip the grocery store who doctors the meat to look fresh and pretty…It is fresh, folks and also cheaper for what you get. Go to my affiliate link and check it out. Save your money and purchase a bit at a time, stocking it up in the freezer. You will save money and your health, I promise.
I used fresh salmon I had stocked up on. I sliced it into large chunks and followed the recipe.
