This Crispy Oven Fried Fish can be made in 30 minutes or less and produces a fully crispy, crunchy, and delicious crust - just like the traditional fish fry of your dreams.


  • 4 cod fillets (1.5 lbs) - you may also use haddock, halibut, or tilapia if you prefer though the cook time may need adjusted
  • 3/4 cups pork rinds (I like Epic Oven Baked Pink Himalayan + Sea Salt), crushed or blended until fine and granular
  • 1/2 cups parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 6 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1 large egg, beaten with a splash of water

The recipe for Lemon Herb Tartar sauce can be found here.


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F (232 C).
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set to the side.
  3. Combine the pork rinds, parmesan cheese, almond flour, and paprika until evenly combined in a wide mouthed dish that can accommodate the length of a fish fillet.
  4. Assemble the beaten egg and water in a shallow dish that can accommodate a fish fillet.
  5. Drench each fish fillet in the egg wash on both sides until coated, then transfer to the dish with breading and press unto each side firmly until coated.
  6. Transfer each fillet to the parchment lined baking tray in turn. If there is additional coating leftover, I like to press a bit of extra into the tops of each fish fillet.
  7. Roast in the middle of the oven until fish reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F and the top is golden, about 15-20 minutes.
  8. Serve with Lemon Herb Tartar Sauce and lemon wedges.
