Low Carb Breaded Fish

  • 2-4 Cod Fillets (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 2 Oz Crushed Plain Pork Rinds
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 Tbsp seasoning of your choice
  • Cooking oil or Deep Fryer. (Best purchase I’ve ever made. Farberware 4-Liter Deep Fryer.)

Preheat your deep fryer to 375 or prepare cooking oil in a large skillet by heating it on high.  Start by crushing your pork rinds into a fine powder.  We accomplished this by placing them in a gallon plastic bag and rolling our fists over the bag.  Add your seasoning to the crushed pork rinds in the bag.  We used a belgian style wheat ale seasoning which gave the fish a wonderful citrus flavor.

Status: Crushed

Whisk two eggs in bowl for an egg wash and pour your almond flour onto a plate.  Take a cod fillet and press it into the almond flour.  This works best if the fillet is damp but not soaking wet.  Next place the fillet in the egg wash making sure to completely wet it without knocking the almond flour off.  Finally place it into the bag of crushed pork rinds and gently shake it up to completely cover the fish.  Fry the breaded fish for 8-9 minutes or until the internal temp has reached 145 degrees as measured by a reliable meat thermometer.  Serve hot and enjoy!
