Servings: 4 people

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 lb White Fish (cod, tilapia, or pollock work great!)
  • ¾ cup Almond Flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2-3 teaspoons Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (For gluten-free or paleo diets, substitute with paprika or your preferred seasoning blend)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Oil for frying (approximately ½ cup, or enough to fill about ½ inch in the bottom of your skillet; beef tallow works wonderfully)


  1. Begin by heating the oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. If you’re using an electric skillet, set it to 375 degrees F for optimal frying temperature.
  2. Set up a dredging station: Place the well-beaten eggs in a rectangular dish. In another dish or shallow plate, combine the almond flour and Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (or your chosen seasoning blend) for coating the fish.
  3. Pat the fish dry with paper towels, ensuring they are thoroughly dry. Season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper.
  4. Dip each piece of fish into the beaten eggs, ensuring they are fully coated. Then, coat both sides of the fish in the almond flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
  5. Carefully place the coated fish into the hot oil in the skillet. Allow them to cook for approximately 2-4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fish, until golden brown and crispy.
  6. Once cooked to perfection, transfer the fried fish to a platter. Allow them to cool slightly before serving to ensure maximum flavor and texture.

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