    I did try this recipe and followed the directions exactly. It wasn’t bad but It wasn’t the greatest either. For being a healthier version of fried fish sticks it tasted okay. I thought it tasted a little dry so I broke my pieces up and put them in a salad. It gave them a little bit of flavor mixed in with a nice green salad. I don’t think I would make it again because I found that the ingredients were pretty expensive. Just the coconut flour and almond meal was $25 alone.
