Fried food

It's been raining quite a bit here, and when it rains, I think back of growing up in Amsterdam, and when I think of my childhood in Amsterdam, I start craving fried stuff ;-)
So this one not strictly paleo, but so delicious and satisfies the "fried" craving.

Fish dipped in evoo, oregano and lemon juice, rolled in some potato flakes.
Preheat the oven to 500. About 10-15 minutes and voila. The recipe is perfect with orange roughy, but tonight I used some fresh flounder.
Some roasted asparagus to go with it.
I usually have some "garlic olive oil" on hand, and used that to coat the asparagus with.
The garlic evoo is so easy to make and so useful for so many things (including an ear-ache for kids, but that's another story) Small glass bottle, thinly slice some garlic and add evoo.

(if blogger might actually get to see it, can you tell this is starting to drive me batty yet?) Next morning........ blogger works.

You could use almond meal instead of potato flakes to make it more paleo!

Son of Grok,

Thank you for stopping by!!
I'll try the almond meal, but isn't it the consistency of flour?
I'm not sure you could get the "crisp" effect. I know others use it, I don't have any experience with it. So I will get some and try some things with it.
Thanks also for all the guality comments on MDA. I always enjoy reading your feedback.

Thanks Marc but I am no one special! Almond meal is slightly courser than flour but is about that consistency. It can add a nice crunch. My wife and I use it to "Bread" our chicken, Fish and shrimp sometimes. Another option if it is to fine is to throw some whole or slivered nuts in a food processor and give them a couple pulses.

I made some baked "fried" chicken cutlets last night. Dredged the boneless breasts in eggs and mustard, then dipped them in almond flour/ground flax mixture. Placed on a large baking sheet and lightly drizzled coconut oil over them. Baked about 25 minutes in a medium oven. My guests really enjoyed.
Oh I think I also sprinkled some salt, garlic and stuff of that nature but I forget!
