Oven Baked Fish and Chips

Oven Baked Fish and Chips

Who doesn’t love crunchy golden fish and chips?  It’s the best.  But I’m certainly not about to fill up a frying pan with hot oil to make this dish for one or two people.  

And I haven’t even mentioned the fat and calories involved in the batter dipped deep fried original.  Many times that batter looks like a sponge dripping with grease.  

In this gluten free oven fried version the fish and chips maintain all of their golden crispy goodness without all the extra fat and calories.  Once you see how easy this one is to throw together I’m pretty certain you might be ditching your usual lunch fare in favor of this pub classic a bit more often.      
Ingredients for the Chips:
·    1 large potato cut into 12 wedges
·    1 tablespoon olive oil
·    a heavy sprinkle of old bay
·    a little rosemary
·    coarse sea salt & pepper, to taste
Ingredients for the Fish:
·    6 oz of tilapia fillet, cut into long strips
·    2/3 cup of gluten free Bisquick
·    1 egg
·    2 tablespoons milk
·    garlic powder
·    paprika
·    old bay seasoning
·    salt & pepper, to taste
·    olive oil, to drizzle on top

Instructions for the chips:
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F or 220 °C.
  2. Scrub the potato and cut into 12 wedges then place it into a medium bowl.
  3. Add the olive oil and all of the seasonings or other seasonings of your choice and toss until they are well coated.
  4. Place them onto a foil lined baking sheet that’s been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
  5. After 15 minutes flip the potatoes and return them to the oven for another 20 minutes. 
Instructions for the Fish:
  1. Cut the fillets into long strips and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2.  In a medium combine the egg milk and a sprinkle of all the seasonings or other seasonings of your choice. 
  3. In another bowl combine the gluten free Bisquick with more of the same seasonings that you used in the egg. 
  4. Dip the fish into the seasoned dry mixture, then dip it into the egg, then back into the dry mixture.  At this point you could either set it aside on a plate, or repeat the process of dipping it into the egg and dry mixture again for a thicker coating. 
  5. Place the fillets onto a foil lined baking sheet and drizzle them with olive oil or spray them with nonstick spray and bake at them at 425°F or 220 °C for 15 minutes then turn them over and bake them for another 5 minutes.


  1. I'm going to have to try this one too! We have been missing fish filets at our house! Who knew you could do it was GF Bisquick. You have a great website! Thank you so much for sharing your fantastic ideas!

    1. Hi Evelyn, I use GF Bisquick frequently, since it's always at the supermarket. It does an awesome job in this recipe. You kind words are very much appreciated. Anne

  2. This recipe turned out tasty. The only thing that didn't work was seasoning the egg/milk mix and the Bisquick mix for the fish. The seasoning was very inconsistent from the egg/milk with lots of seasoning on one or part of a fish stick and very little on others. I would recommend just seasoning the Bisquick mix. I will see what happens the next time I bake it.

    1. Sure you can try that. But I didn't have any problems with the seasonings distribution. Maybe the written instructions could be clearer. In the directions I say to "combine" the milk eggs and seasonings. Maybe I should have said "beat together" to insure that the seasoning is well distributed. And even in the bisquick mixture the seasoning needs to be well mixed and that should eliminate any inconsistencies,
