This Crispy Roasted White Fish recipe offers a delicious twist on the classic fish fry. Featuring a crispy, crunchy crust made of pork rinds, almond flour, and Parmigiano Reggiano enveloping tender fish, this easy gluten-free and low-carb dish can be whipped up in just 30 minutes or less.


  • 1 1/2 lbs white fish (such as cod), deboned and cut into 4 or 6 portions
  • 42 g (1.5 oz or 3/4 cups) pork rinds, blended until breadcrumb consistency
  • 39 g (6 tbsp) almond flour
  • 28 g (1 oz or 1/3 cup) Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 large egg, beaten with a small splash of water
  • Optional: Lemon Herb Tartar Sauce and lemon wedges, to serve


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees Celsius). Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a wide dish or shallow bowl, combine pork rinds, almond flour, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, paprika, and black pepper.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg with a splash of water until well-combined.
  4. Drench each fish fillet in the egg wash on both sides, then transfer to the dish with breading, pressing firmly and flipping until coated on both sides.
  5. Place each coated fillet on the prepared baking tray. If there's any remaining breading, sprinkle it over the fillets.
  6. Roast in the middle of the oven until the crust is golden and the internal temperature of the fish reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit (63 degrees Celsius), about 15-20 minutes.
  7. Serve warm with Lemon Herb Tartar Sauce and lemon wedges.
