Fried Fish with Pork Rind

Serves: 2
Carbs Per Serving: 16 Grams Carbs
Prep Time: 20 min
Effort: Easy

2 tilapia (cod, scrod, or sole will also work) fillets
2/4 bags pork rinds
1 tbsp bacon bits
1 tbsp Parmesan 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 pork rinds, 1 tbsp bacon bits, 1 tbsp Parmesan or Romano cheese, 1 tsp garlic powder or chopped garlic, 1 tbsp onion flakes, 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 (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) until golden brown. this “breading” tastes just like bread crumbs only ten times better.
Fried cheese
Simply slice your favorite cheese fairly thin, throw it on a hot griddle with some butter, and cook to desired browning level. these are delicious dipped in ranch dressing.
