Servings: 4 People

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


1 lb White Fish (cod, tilapia, or pollock)
¾ cup Almond Flour
Salt and pepper, to taste
2-3 teaspoons Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (For gluten-free or paleo, substitute with paprika or preferred seasoning blend)
2 eggs, beaten
Oil for frying (approximately ½ cup beef tallow or oil of choice)

Preheat and Prepare: Heat oil over medium-high heat in a heavy skillet or set an electric skillet to 375 degrees F.

Egg Bath: Beat the eggs thoroughly and place them in a rectangular dish.

Season and Coat: Pat the fish dry with paper towels and season both sides with salt and pepper. Dip each piece in the beaten eggs, then coat evenly in a mixture of almond flour and Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (or chosen seasoning), shaking off excess.

Frying Perfection: Carefully place the coated fish into the hot oil and cook for 2-4 minutes per side, adjusting based on the fish’s thickness. The almond crust should turn golden brown and crispy.

Serve with Finesse: Transfer the fried fish to a platter, allowing it to cool slightly before serving.

SERVINGS4 people

PREP TIME10minutes mins

COOK TIME15minutes mins

1 lb White Fish cod, tilapia, or pollock work great!
¾ cup Almond Flour
Salt and pepper
2-3 teaspoon Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning For gluten free or paleo – you can substitute with paprika – or the seasoning blend of your choice
2 eggs beaten
Oil for frying (you will need enough for about ½ inch in the bottom of your skillet) I used about ½ cup of beef tallow

Heat the oil over medium high heat a heavy skillet. If you have an electric skillet, set it to 375 degrees F
Set up the well beaten eggs in a rectangular dish. Then combine the almond meal, and Tony’s (or other seasoning) and place on a plate or shallow dish for dipping the fish.
Using paper towels, pat the fish very dry, then season both sides with salt and pepper dip in the egg, then coat both sides in the almond flour mixture – shaking to remove the excess.
Place the fish into the hot oil in the skillet. Allow to cook for about 2-4 minutes per side, depending upon the thickness of your fish.
Remove to a platter, allow to cool slightly before serving.

Nutrition info for this recipe is tricky since the exact amount of egg, flour and beef tallow (or other oil) used will vary slightly each time it is prepared.

This is my best estimate based upon how much was left over when I cooked this. It’s also based upon using cod.
