Carb-Check Diet: Pork Rind Crusted Tilapia

By Mike Thayer

Pork Rind Breaded TilapiaThis was tonight's dinner. Two pork rind crusted Tilapia fillets. That's right, you read that correctly, pork rind crusted! DELICIOUS!  Finely pulsed regular, plain pork rinds in a food processor, rather than bread crumbs.  I added some seasoning to the pulsed pork rinds, some dried parsley, garlic powder, salt, black pepper.  After soaking the fish fillets in some milk for a bit, I 'breaded' the fillets and put them in some hot canola oil, 3 minutes on the first side, 2 minutes on the second.

It's another dose of YUM!  I'm full, I'm feeling very satisfied with a crunchy fried food..... no side dishes required. And guess what, no carbs! This dinner provided me with 40 grams of protein. I tested the pork rind 'breading' on fish because fish doesn't take long at all to cook, my fear was burning the 'breading' from a longer stay in the frying pan. But based on these initial results, I'm thinking some thin cut pork chops is worth a try!

And this was a very Bachelor on the Cheap wallet friendly meal.  Tilapia is an inexpensive fish and pork rinds are flat out cheap!  This tasty fish meal cost me about $6 to prepare and I've leftovers for lunch tomorrow and plenty of pork rinds to snack on later!
