GLUTEN FREE FISH AND CHIPSIf you want to try the great British favourite of fish & chips, but you need to know they are gluten free, here are some places around town that do them with a separate fryer.

I have not tried them all, but each one has come recommended by someone who has eaten there safely. If you have eaten anywhere else youd recommend, just let me know via the contacts page or by email [email protected].

Beer Batter Fish With Chips And Tartare Sauce

There is nothing like fish and chips but I know how difficult it can be to find good gluten free fish and chips, free from cross contamination, when you are out and about. This is a delicious recipe so you can enjoy it at home whenever you want! By shallow frying the fish and oven baking homemade chips, this recipe offers a lighter take on a seaside classic.


  • 800g Maris Piper or King Edward potatoes, scrubbed
  • 4 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 125g gluten free flour, plus extra for coating the fish
  • 150ml chilled gluten free beer
  • 4 x 150g boneless skinless white fish red bream, cod, hake, or haddock
  • 300g mushy or frozen peas

For the tartare sauce:

  • 1 small shallot, peeled and quartered
  • 10g fresh parsley
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

What Type Of Oil Should You Use

Typically, canola oil is used for frying. It is fairly cheap and has a high smoke point. However, for a cleaner flavour and to possibly be a little healthier, use peanut oil. It is more expensive, but I prefer it for frying. And, you can strain it, put it in a sealed jar and keep it in the fridge for months. Just pull it out anytime you want to fry something.

Gluten Free Fish And Chips

March 16, 2010 by Sarah Howells

It’s not always the everyday foods that Coeliacs miss. Special treats such as take-aways and meals out are often more of a difficulty if you’re gluten free, especially if you’re a fan of fish and chips.

But if you’re on Facebook, then one woman has the answer to finding fish and chips that you can eat! Heather Shore has been diagnosed as a Coeliac for 12 years, and found herself desperately missing fish and chips, so she has created a Facebook group to try and discover and share gluten free chip shops over the UK

The group, called GLUTEN FREE FISH AND CHIP SHOPS IN THE UK! features discussion boards and posts showing gluten free fish and chip shops all over the country.

Heather said: “The very first food I missed on the gf diet was ‘Chip shop’ fish n chips and it’s only in the past few years that I have found out about gf fryers.”

She came up with the idea after looking on a gluten free discussion board. “I mentioned that I travelled an hour to get gluten free chip shop chips. A few people were really interested about it. They wanted to know where it was and were upset when they realised they were too far away.” She said.

Heather felt great satisfaction in helping them to find gluten free shops near them, and decided, “lets find them all!” So she started the group on Facebook and it has been growing since.

I think the group is an amazing idea, and I have managed to find a gluten free fish and chip shop near me!

Vegan Fish And Chips Recipe

Gluten free beer battered fish and chips recipe (dairy ...

A vegan rendition of the infamous British cuisine known as fish and chips. Using banana blossom in place of fish, encased in a crispy gluten free batter served with chunky chips.

Whether you are a vegan or simply on the hunt for a pseudo fish replica then this recipe is just for you.

Before I delve into the details of that you need to make this recipe right the first time. I will put this disclaimer out there, this recipe does requires SHALLOW FRYING.

Those of you that know my style of cooking will know that I’m not a huge fan of deep fat frying. However, the only way that I can successfully cook this fish is to fry it in a bit more oil then I would normally use.

I tried a million times to air fry the “fish” but it just didn’t work out for me so I want you to be aware of this cooking method before hand.

Also, this recipe is strictly a CHEAT MEAL not CHEAT DAY, meaning it’s not something I would recommend you eat on a daily basis nor should you compromise your eating habit after having this meal.

Why because shallow and deep frying isn’t the best cooking method to use.

This recipe is an exception to my usual cooking style, but as mentioned before this recipe may not be for you so scroll on and read to decide for yourself.

If it’s not for you, that’s okay because if I will update the cooking method to being oil free/healthier in the future if possible.

The ultimate gluten free meal and the holy grail of food for many coeliacs is finding safe gluten free fish and chips in the UK! Yet tracking down suitable gluten free fish and chips can be tricky and often leads to serious bouts of HANGER .

I am constantly being asked to recommend coeliac friendly chippies by my followers on and I decided it was about time I wrote a big old list of top gluten free fish and chip UK recommendations. I have had some amazing gluten free fish and chips in my time and it turns out there are actually LOADS of places across the country offering it! The list below includes pubs too and covers places that can:

  • cater for coeliacs, and
  • offer gluten free fish and chips every day of the week.
  • If your fave UK gluten free fish and chips restaurant is missing from this list please email me at .

    What Does It Taste Like

    Just like Jackfruit, banana blossom is pretty much tasteless. It tastes like what to want it to be, in other words you have to tailor it to suit.

    While banana blossom doesn’t taste completely like fish, it’s flaky texture gives off the illusion plus using condiments like nori sheets, lemon and seaweed help yield more flavour.

    Remove Fish From The Air Fryer

    Whew! The hard part is over. Using my large spatula, I remove the cooked fish from air fryer to a serving platter. Using an instant read thermometer, I check the temperature of the thickest mini-fillet. Fish must reach an internal temperature of 145°F to be safely consumed. My fillets easily reach this temp after 6 minutes, but the cooking time may vary depending on your particular air fryer and how thick your haddock fillets are. Then, I retrieve the chips from the oven and add to the serving platter.

    Dont Discard The Oil After Frying This Gluten Free Beer Battered Fish

    Gluten Free Keto Fish And Chips With Keto Tartar Sauce

    Did you know that you can reuse your deep-frying oil? I often pour mine through a sieve lined with paper towel to remove anything that has sunk to the bottom, and store it in a jar in the fridge until the next time I want to deep fry something. Since you used this for fish, I wouldnt recommend making gluten free Old-Fashioned Doughnuts in it. Instead, you can use it to make:

    The Lack Of Space Factor

    As fish takes up more space than fries or chicken tenders, it’s a bit more difficult to fit fish in the air fryer if you have an 8-quart Instant Pot Duo Crisp like I do with a 6-quart air fryer basket. Thus, I decided to split the fish fillets in half so that you can fit 3 fillets in one batch. I typically don’t mind doing multiple batches, but when you have to cook chips in one batch and fish in another, that’s a lot of air frying already. If you prefer to have more than 2 servings of fish, you can easily just double the fish ingredients and cook two batches of fish. Keep the first batch warm in the oven with the chips while the second batch cooks.

    Gluten Free Beer Battered Fish

    May 11, 2011

    You wont believe how easy it is to make your own Gluten Free Beer Battered Fish at home. Add a side of hot fries and some creamy coleslaw, and youve got the perfect pub dinner.

    In the 10 years since my celiac disease diagnosis, I have only come across the occasion for gluten free fried fish while eating out twice. You may think good, fried food is bad for you. True, I wont argue with you there. But fried food is something that I think people that can still eat gluten dont really think about.

    Even finding a restaurant that has a safe deep fryer for french fries can be a challenge. So finding a place that has gluten free Beer Battered Fish or gluten free Onion Rings is nearly impossible.

    This gluten free Beer Battered Fish dish actually comes together quite quickly. Quick enough that it can be prepared on a weeknight. If you have time to bake some french fries, you have enough time to fry up some fish. The fish actually takes less time to cook than the french fries.

    Ive made this with both tilapia and cod fish, and my family definitely prefers the cod. It has less of a fishy flavor, which no one here really likes.

    What If You Could Make Awesome Gluten Free Beer Battered Fish And Chips In Your Own Home Forget Fish Friday It Would Be Fish Every Day For Me

    Gluten Free Fish and Chips

    Making your own gluten free beer battered fish and chips recipe really isnt that difficult to pull off. But getting the batter-mix recipe right so that its super light, bubbly and crisp definitely is. Fortunately Ive done the hard part for you!

    So whats the secret to a light, golden and crispy gluten free batter? Well of course, its not much of a secret but the first important ingredient is gluten free beer.

    I always wondered why beer was necessary in batter since you never even taste it, but what were after is the bubbles!

    We want that batter to be super light and airy and all that fizziness in beer guarantees the perfect start to recreating my gluten free beer battered fish and chips recipe.

    Secondly, is to make sure that you use gluten-free self-raising flour instead of plain flour.

    This was actually a happy accident that Mark discovered when making our battered sweet and sour chicken recipe.

    We had run out of plain gluten free plain flour so we thought well, this cant be any worse and we werent wrong. It was so much better! It always, always, always results in a batter that has so much more rise and air into it I think theres a few more added raising agents in it.

    Thats my biggest secret to creating the perfect batter in my gluten free beer battered fish and chips recipe, so dont tell anyone ?

    Oh and we made this recipe live at the Allergy and Free From Show 2019 this year! Who was there watching?!

    Other Gluten Free Coatings

    The gluten free coating I have used this time are the very handy rice crumbs, which are very easy to find in most supermarkets, independent shops and I have even seen them in some farm shops too. You can also use cornflake crumbs too just crush them in a plastic bag and they are ready for coating your fish. Other gluten free crumbs that are suitable are cornmeal, cornflour and also gluten-free bread crumbs of course.

    Resources For The Gluten Free Kitchen

    Americas Test Kitchen is a wealth of knowledge like no other and they can cook gluten free too. They do more work than any home cook could ever do to figure out what makes a recipe work and they share that knowledge in their cookbooks. I highly recommend any of these books to give as a gift or as a treat for yourself.
