Dare Foods Contest -- Gluten Free Breaded Fish

I'm pretty certain y'all have heard of Celiac Disease.  Celiac Disease is "an autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine.  It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide.  2.5 million Americans are undiagnosed and are at risk for long-term health complications."  This is according to the Celiac Disease Foundation

What is Gluten?
Gluten is the protein that give wheat it's shape and elasticity. 

Where is it found?
baked goods
salad dressings
food coloring
malt vinegar
soy sauce
meat substitutes

And so much more!  Gluten is found in foods you wouldn't expect them to be.  People who suffer from Celiac Disease and gluton intolerances have to read every product label to double check if the food has gluton.  

Did you know that May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month?  And to honor Celiac Disease Awareness Month Dare foods has given The Recipe Redux members a challenge.  To make a light and healthy dish using their new line of Breton Gluton Free Crackers.  They were even nice enough to send out free samples. 

Disclaimer: I received free samples of Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax and Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic from Dare Foods Incorporated mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Dare Foods Incorporated and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

When I started thinking about what to make I immediately thought of the girls.  What is one of their favorite foods that I have not seen in a gluton free variety?  Over my standard dinner of fish I realized that I have never seen a gluton free fish stick.  And that's how this recipe was born.  It's quick, it's simple and it's REALLY good.    

Gluten Free Baked Breaded Fish


4 tilapia filets
2 eggs, beaten
1 package Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic crackers, crushed


  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. Dip filets, one at a time, in egg making sure to completely coat it
  3. Coat filets in cracker crumbs then lay on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with pan spray
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, flip then bake for another 10 minutes until your fish is done and breading is browned.

I serve it with rice and vegetables or a nice salad.


  1. I'll bet your girls loved these. My kids would!

    1. They really did. My oldest said that the crispy edges tasted like they had actually been fried instead of baked.
