Fried fish has never been easier. Choose the type of fish you want and follow this recipe and you will have great golden, crunchy fried fish. I was very impressed how this turned out. Used catfish because that’s what Kroger’s butcher had on hand. Threw them on some folio cheese wraps for fish tacos! Hope you enjoy.
- 1 bag Kroger pork rinds, spicy or mild or both
- 4 eggs
- 6 tbs almond flour
- 4 tbs coconut flour
- 3 oz shredded parmesan cheese
- seasoning of choice
- 4-6 fish fillets (catfish)
I like to prepare the fish first. I took the fillets and quartered them to make them more taco friendly. You can do smaller nuggets or leave the fillet whole, any combination will work.
Prepare you batter station. In your mixer, add your pork rinds and blend down. Remove the lid, add your parmesan cheese, seasoning, and 6 tbs of almond flour and blend another 10 seconds or so. Pour contents into a batter friendly dish.
In a separate bowl, add your eggs and whip. I chose to add more seasoning here because I believe in flavor!! On a plate, dump out your coconut flour. Set up the station from left to right, fish —> coconut flour —-> egg —-> pork rinds.
Let’s get to battering. Add fish to the coconut flour and coat both sides really well. Dip in the egg and coat both sides in egg really good. Remove from the egg and let excess drip off. Immediately add to the pork rind mix. Pat down really good and flip. Ensure you have a nice even coating on your fish. Continue until you have completed all your fish.
When done battering, place fish in your pre-heated air fryer and air fry at 400 degrees for 14 minutes. If you have a rack system, you shouldn’t have to flip. If you don’t have racks, I suggest flipping at halfway to get both sides crispy. Just be careful flipping as your breading will want to pull off. Remove from the air fryer and rest for a few minutes. Plate, and enjoy!
