Woahhh that’s a long title!
I know I have been a bad blogger. The homestead/farm keeps me pretty busy lately and I have been using extra time to take care of the animals or work on my garden. I am thinking about cutting down the blogging from 3 days to maybe 2 or even 1 day a week until school ends (SOON THANK GOD)! That way I can feel less stressed out when I don’t get a blog post up.
However I am excited today to share a new recipe for something I don’t eat a lot- fish.
The lovely folks at Dare Foods sent me a couple of samples of their gluten free crackers to try. I used to be a Ritz cracker junkie! I literally made a habit of housing an entire sleeve of Ritz crackers with peanut butter on any given day after school in high school.
They sent me two kinds, the original with flax and the garlic & herb. I’ll admit I ate through the entire “original” kind as is! They were delicious, and didn’t need any embellishments! For the garlic and herb I wanted to create a fancier recipe, and this cod is what I came up with! We rarely eat fish, even though I know we should. Wild caught fish is so expensive, especially salmon! So except for my canned sardines I really don’t eat that much seafood unless it’s on sale. That’s why when I saw this cod on sale I had to grab it!
It is the perfect white fish to impart some spicy flavor on, and that’s just what these crackers add. They also give you the nice crunchy texture of fried fish without all the junk! You should definitely check out these crackers if you’re looking for a quality gluten free cracker! I just actually saw them at the grocery store last week so I’m sure I’ll be picking some up. They would be a great option if you’re looking for something quick for a party, and their large size makes them perfect for appetizer-type recipes.
I received free samples of Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax and Breton Gluten Free Herb and
Garlic from Dare Foods Incorporated mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a

- 2 large pieces of fresh Alaskan cod
- 1 cup of Breton Gluten Free Garlic & Herb Crackers, crushed
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons hot sauce, such as Frank's Red Hot
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- Pre-heat oven to 375
- Prep your ingredients to dip the fish- crush crackers, and lay out the tapioca flour.
- Beat the egg in a small bowl and add the hot sauce and coconut milk. Beat to incorporate.
- Carefully dip the cod first in the egg mixture, then in the tapioca flour, then in the crushed crackers.
- Lay the cod on an aluminum and metal rack lined baking sheet.*
- Repeat for the second piece of cod.
- Bake the cod for 15-25 minutes depending on the thickness of your fish. (Mine was about an inch thick and took 25 minutes). It should be opaque and flake easily.
- *Baking the fish on metal rack produces a crispier fish. If you don't have one, just cook it on the pan on the aluminum foil.
How often do you eat fish?
