Crispy Baked Fish and Chips
Good ole’ white potatoes make the best “chips” for this recipe, but we make them all the time with sweet potatoes or Japanese sweet potatoes and it tastes fantastic! Another option if potatoes aren’t something you want to make alongside this dish is to use baked yuca or jicama as a “fry” with a sprinkle of sea salt, vinegar, or lemon juice.
Here are a couple of our favorite side dishes that go great with these Crispy Baked Fish and Chips:
Know Your Proteins
Animal proteins aren’t for everyone, and we here at Nutrition Stripped are very selective of what we bring into our home from the market and what we put on our dinner table.
For more information about navigating animal proteins, check out our Guide to Eating Animal Proteins. If consuming animal protein do fit your lifestyle, then we recommend making this recipe with cod or any white flaky fish following our guidelines to getting animal proteins.

If you don’t consume animal proteins, you can make this recipe using tofu as the protein. If using this path to the recipe, then you’ll need an egg replacer to make sure the breading sticks to the tofu and then follow with all the remaining ingredients.
Everything’s better with sauce
Everyone has their favorite dips and sauces, but when it comes to fish and chips, you can’t beat the classics. Fresh lemon wedges, malt vinegar and of course our favorite, tangy dairy-free homemade tartar sauce.
