There are so many wonderful places on the internet to find Dutch recipes and I was lucky enough to discover this Kibbeling recipe over at HomeCookingDivaThis food blogger is an ex-pat living in Holland and married to a Dutchman, so I value her opinion on recipes.

Kibbeling is fresh cod cut into bite-size pieces, dipped into batter and deep fried.  Similar to our fish nuggets - but so much better!  They are served with Knoflook Saus (garlic sauce).  I will post that recipe next time.

3.75 ounces tilapia fillet (it should be cod but any firm-fleshed white fish will do)
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp baking powder
2-5 tbsp milk
1 small egg
1 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Cut the fish into bite-size pieces. Use kitchen paper to get rid of any liquids.
  2. Combine all the dry ingredients together.
  3. Add the egg and mix well.
  4. Add the milk one tablespoon at a time. It’s important that the batter is not too wet; you want a nice coating on the fish.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Let the batter stand for just about 5 minutes.
  7. In the meantime, heat up your deep fryer (friteuse)to 180 C. (If you don’t have a deep fryer, a deep pan will do just ensure you put in enough oil so that the fish is submerged in oil during frying.)
  8. Put the fish into the batter and make sure they are well coated.
  9. Fry the fish for about 5 minutes.
