  • Air Fryer (preferred)


For the "Beer" Battered Fish

  • 2 lbs tilapia
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 1/2 cups seltzer water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

For the Chips (per serving)

  • 1 large yokon gold potato or three small potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt


For the "Beer" Battered Fish

  • Line whatever pan you are using for the fish with parchment paper
  • Cut the fish into the desired size
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot starch, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, olive oil, and seltzer water.
  • Gently mix in the dry ingredients in to the wet ingredients. A thick batter should form.
  • Lightly salt the fish, then dip it in the batter. The batter should be thick, and you might need to add the batter to one side of the fish, place it face down on the parchment paper, and spoon more on top. Be sure to move some batter to the sides to connect both sides of the breading.
  • Put the fish in the Air Fryer, and cook at 370° F for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, flip the fish to cook on the other side.
  • Cook for another 15-20 minutes, until breading is completely cooked.

For the chips

  • Chop your potato into fry-like shapes.
  • Toss the fries in olive oil and salt
  • Place in Air Fryer for 15 minutes. If you are making your fries in the oven, be sure to flip them half way through so that they cook evenly on both sides.
