Low Carb Recipe – Fried Fish with Pork Rind

Serves: 2 | CarbsPerServing :16.365 | Prep Time: 20 min | Effort: Easy

2 tilapia (cod, scrod, or sole will also work) fillets
2/4 bag baked pork rinds
1 tbsp bacon bits
1 tbsp parmaesan or romano cheese
1 tbsp onion flakes
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp old bay seasoning
1 tsp cayenne or chili pepper
6 slices garlic and herb cheese (fried crispy)
2 eggs
enough equal parts olive oil and butter to fill pan 1 cm

How to Prepare:

Blend 3/4 bag of pork rinds, onion flakes, parmaesan or romano cheese, bacon bits, garlic powder or chopped garlic, salt, pepper, old bay, cayenne or chili powder, and crushed fried garlic and herb cheddar cheese in a food processor until you have a fine powder. Dip tilapia fish (my favorite, but cod, sole, or scrod works just as well) fillets in an egg wash (beaten eggs) and then coat thoroughly with “breading.” fry in a large iron frying pan in olive oil and butter (about 1 cm deep) until golden brown. This “breading” tastes much better than bread crumbs.
