Baked Fish Nuggets – a super easy recipe for making homemade fish nuggets!  They are kid-friendly and absolutely delicious!


  • 16oz cod fish, thawed & pat dry
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almondmilk
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca starch
  • pinch of kosher salt and ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a shallow bowl whisk together the egg and almond milk to fully combine.
  3. In another shallow bow add almond flour, Old Bay seasoning, tapioca starch and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Place one piece of fish at a time in the egg wash to fully coat and then lift, allowing excess to fall off.
  5. Then place fish in the almond flour mixture, moving it around to fully coat.
  6. Place prepared fish nuggets on a parchment-lined baking sheet and continue until all of the fish chunks are fully coated.
  7. Bake for 6 minutes.
  8. Remove and flip each piece over. Bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  9. Remove and let them sit for 2 minutes to cool slightly.
  10. Serve immediately with your favorite tartar sauce (I like this homemade version).
