Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of mint

  • 1 ½ tsp garlic salt

  • ½ jar + 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 onion sliced thinly

  • 2 tsps of minced garlic

  • 1 cup of coconut flour

  • 1 bunch of Chinese broccoli

  • 1 egg

  • 3 pieces of halibut (about 1.5 pounds)



Directions:

  1. Take your bunch of mint and pluck most of the leaves off.  Stack the leaves into manageable groups, roll or fold them hot dog style, and slice horizontally as thinly as possible.  Then use your knife to chop into smaller pieces and push into one large pile of minced mint
  2. Chop your cauliflower into large pieces and place into a food processor
  3. Run on high until it resembles the texture and size of rice-y quinoa
  4. Add all of your cauliflower, 1 teaspoon of mint, and ½ teaspoon garlic salt to a medium saucepan
  5. Pour in 3 tablespoons of coconut milk, 1 tablespoon of water and stir until well combined
  6. Cover with a lid and place on low heat on a back burner.  This should cook for about 15 minutes.  Taste test a few times after you hit the 12-minute mark to see how you like the texture
  7. In a medium frying pan heat up 1 tablespoon of coconut oil on medium heat
  8. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until fragrant
  9. Add 1 tablespoon mint and a sprinkle of garlic salt and stir
  10. Combine 1 cup coconut flour, 1 tablespoon mint, and 1 teaspoon garlic salt on a large plate and set aside
  11. Returning to your frying pan, add the bunch of Chinese broccoli and cover with the rest of the coconut milk.  Leave to simmer while you prepare your fish.
  12. Heat up ½ jar of coconut oil in a large frying pan
  13. In a wide bowl scramble your egg with a fork
  14. Dip your first piece of fish into the egg.  Be sure to coat every side
  15. Now place the fish onto the flour mixture.  Flip over a few times to fully coat the piece of fish.  Don’t be afraid to toss some on top.  Shake off the excess and place aside
  16. Repeat the process with your next two pieces of fish
  17. Now carefully place each piece of fish into the large frying pan, be sure not to let them touch

  18. Cook for about four minutes on each side

  19. While the fish is cooking continue to stir your broccoli mixture

  20. After your fish has cooked for about 8 minutes remove from the frying pan and place on a paper towel to remove any excess oil

  21. Place a scoop of cauliflower rice on each plate, add a piece of fish, and top with your broccoli and onion.

  22. Add a dash of hot sauce if you want some heat, serve and enjoy!
