Gluten-Free Prairie’s Best Fried Fish Tacos

A light batter made with our Flour Blend (or Pancake Mix) is fried in just a bit of oil ( high flash point such as safflower or avocado oil) makes the delicious Fish Tacos that NO one will believe are Gluten-Free

TIPS!: 1) Take the fish out of the fridge for about 15 min before cooking. (if it’s too cold – the outside will cook much faster and inside will be undercooked)

            2) Once the fish is in the pan, avoid the urge to move it around! Let it be. That will set the coating.

            3)  Recipe can easily be doubled
