Sorry for yelling at your eyes…but…

THIS IS THE BEST FISH AND CHIPS I’VE EVER HAD! IT’S KETO + WHOLE30! THE FRIED FISH IS BASICALLY ZERO CARBS!!!

Ok, I’ll try to stop yelling.

Keto Fish + Chips Batter

To mimic the crispy and crunchy batter, I’m using pork rind panko. It’s just ground up pork rinds! 0 carbs! And Whole30 compliant if using as a breading.

It adheres to the fish perfectly, and gets crispy + golden brown when pan fried in avocado oil.

Best Fish To Use

Any firm white fish is perfect for these keto fish + chips. My go to’s are cod or mahi mahi. Halibut works too! Heck, you could even make this with skinless salmon.

I’m sure to always use wild caught fish. Costco has great wild caught cod + mahi mahi in their freezer section for a cheap price.

Serving Keto Fish + Chips

The crispy fish is the star of the show, but the sides are important too! You must serve these fish + chips with my homemade tartar sauce, keto french fries + herby lemon coleslaw.

You’ll feel like you’re in a British pub, but enjoying all the clean eating health benefits!

Instructions

  1. Pat the fish filets completely dry.
  2. Set up your dredging station. In a small container, beat the 2 eggs. In another container, add the pork rind panko.
  3. Coat the fish. First, dip in the egg, then dip in the pork rind panko, pressing to adhere. Repeat with all fish filets.
  4. Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add in the avocado oil and heat for 1 more minute.
  5. Add in the coated fish filets. Cook for 4-5 minutes, then flip when golden brown and cook another 2-4 minutes until the fish has an internal temperature of 125ºF.
  6. Remove from the heat, sprinkle with fresh salt, and let the filets rest on a wire baking rack.  This will keep them extra crispy and prevent a soggy bottom!
  7. Serve warm topped with tartar sauce along with keto french fries and herby lemon coleslaw!
  8. Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for at least 1 week.
