I am so happy to tell you about these keto fried fish tacos that I recently made with Alaskan wild cod and pork panko.
If you are on a keto or grain free diet, you can now have fried fish tacos!
Pork Panko is made from pork skins and are zero carbs. Our Costco in now carrying Pork Panko at a good price. If you can’t find them, you can make your own use a food processor and grind pork rinds.
I wondered if it would ever be possible to have fried fish again, since grains aren’t a regular part of my diet (outside of some sour dough here and there).
While you could crush your own, these are already perfectly made and more cost effective. They don’t have an overbearing oil flavor, are more neutral and perfect for oven-fried zucchini , chicken parm, mayonannaise baked chicken, or shrimp scampi.
What makes a good Keto Fried fish taco and fish taco sauce?
Firstly, the fish should be good, but it has to have the right fish taco sauce and shredded cabbage. There are two ways to make an easy spicy creamy sauce. I usually will combine sour cream with mayonnaise, add lime juice and sriracha. You could also use a fire-roasted salsa or a salsa verde to make a sauce for fish tacos. My favorite is even amounts of fire roasted salsa, sour cream and mayonnaise.
I use my grain free tortillas for these fish tacos.
