Scale

Ingredients

Dry-Wet-Dry Method

12 ounces Alaskan cod filets cut into 2-inch slices (I got about 20 fish sticks out of mine)

2 eggs

2 ounces pork rinds crushed to into a bread crumb like consistency

1/3 cup almond flour

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp paprika

Salt and pepper to taste (I used salted pork rinds so I didn’t need as much additional salt but if you use unsalted, you will need to add a little extra)

Wet-Dry Method

12 ounces Alaskan cod filets cut into 2-inch slices (I got about 20 fish sticks out of mine)

2 eggs

2 ounces pork rinds crushed to into a bread crumb like consistency

1 cup almond flour (you may have a little left over)

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp paprika

Salt and pepper to taste


Instructions

Crack eggs and whisk together in a small bowl

Combine almond flour, paprika, salt, pepper and garlic powder and spread on a plate

Add crushed pork rinds to another plate and place in an assembly line starting with the almond flour mixture, then the eggs, followed by the pork rinds

Roll fish in the almond flour, dip into the egg wash and then roll into the pork rind crumbs

Using tongs, place in a single layer in the air fryer (affiliate link).  I was able to fit 10 in comfortably, so I did 2 batches.

Set air fryer (affiliate link) to 380 degrees and heat for 8 minutes flipping halfway through

When your fish is all done, squeeze lemon juice over the top, pair with your favorite condiment and enjoy!


Notes

Note: If you are making it without the pork rinds, simply skip that step and drip fish into the egg wash first and then the almond flour mixture.
