Paleo Fish Nuggets


And…the fish nuggets to go with the tartar sauce from yesterday! The Costco wild halibut called to me again, so I threw these together.  Because I keep my paleo “breadcrumbs” in my pantry, this was unbelievably simple.  It was absolutely perfect with my paleo tartar sauce.


  • 1 lb wild halibut cut into strips for either fish sticks or fish nuggets
  • 1 cup paleo breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot or tapioca flour (seasoned with salt and pepper to taste)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 Tbsp avocado oil, ghee, lard, bacon fat, or coconut oil
  • lemon to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Dip the fish in the flour, then egg, and then breadcrumbs. Cook the fish for about 1.5 minutes on each side.  Remove to a paper towel and allow to rest for a minute.  Serve with paleo tartar sauce and a sprinkle of lemon juice.
