  • 4 (6 ounce) fresh cod fillets

  • ¼ cup coconut aminos

  • ½ cup shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

  • 1/2 cup garlic keto bread crumbs

  • cup unsweetened coconut flakes

  • 1 tablespoon granular sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda®)

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground dried chipotle pepper

  • 3 large egg yolks

  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos


  1. Marinate cod in 1/4 cup coconut aminos in a glass or ceramic bowl for 8 hours.

  2. Combine Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, bread crumbs, coconut flakes, sweetener, salt, and chipotle pepper together in the bowl of a food processor; blend into a moderately fine powder.

  3. Mix egg yolks, cream, and remaining 2 tablespoons coconut aminos together in another bowl for egg wash.

  4. Dredge fish fillets in the egg wash then cover completely in the bread crumb mixture until thickly coated.

  5. Air-fry at 360 degrees F (182 degrees C) until fish flakes easily with a fork, 7 to 8 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For homemade keto air-fried bread crumbs, cut keto bread in cubes, add garlic powder, salt, and a light spray of olive oil. Toss together in a bowl and air-fry at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) until toasty, 5 to 6 minutes.
