The most bread-like breading! The most bread-like breading!
Number of Servings: 3


    -1/2 cup of finely ground pork rinds
    -1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
    -salt/pepper/cayenne/garlic powder... your favorite seasonings

    -1 egg
    -1 tbsp heavy cream

    -3 frozen vacuum sealed tilapia fillets
    -A few tbsp of oil


I tried this with "Barbeque flavor" pork rinds and loved the outcome.


Thaw the fish by letting the still vacuumed fillets sit in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes.

Use a food processor or mortar and pestle to finely ground the pork rinds into a powder. (If the pieces are too big they wonít stick to the fish.)

In one bowl, thoroughly mix the pork rind powder with the parmesan and whatever spices you've chosen.

In a second bowl, whisk the egg and heavy cream.

Cut the thawed fish into nuggets (about 1 inch squares.) The smaller you do it the faster it will cook and the less chance of the "breading" being burnt.

Heat a skillet to medium-high heat, then add enough oil to coat the entire surface to a depth of 1/4 inch.

Thoroughly coat the fish in the egg mixture on all sides, then thoroughly coat it in the pork rind/cheese mixture and toss it in the oil.

Fry until itís golden brown, (about 2-3 minutes) flipping half way through.

Serving Size:†Makes 25-30 nuggets.

    The whole family was happy. I used spoonbill cut into chunks. I let the fish rest for a few minutes after coating and before frying. The coating stayed on just fine. - 1/3/20
