In my quest for healthier eating, I have been incorporating more gluten free and low carb recipes. I also want to just eat healthier with less wheat products. This coating for chicken, fish, or even vegetables, is delicious and in my opinion, guilt free. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do.

How to Make Low Carb Almond, Coconut, & Parmesan Crumb Coating

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Place a rack over baking sheet and spray with non stick spray. Set aside. A convection oven works great for this recipe. A conventional oven work too, and the high oven temp help the coating get crispyand stay crispy.
  2. Prepare the meat or vegetables you are making. We love this coating on fish, chicken tenders, zucchini, green tomatoes, etc. Make sure you pat them dry with paper towels.
  3. Prepare coating: If you don't have almond flour or meal, pulse almonds in food processor until coarsely ground. Mix with coconut, Parmesan, and seasoning.
  4. Beat egg whites until frothy. Dust fish, chicken or veggies with cornstarch or flour of choice. Shake off excess. Dip into egg white, and then in the coating. Place on rack and bake until done and browned...time will vary, depending on what you are baking, but usually about 10-20 minutes. When serving, you can offer some sauces for dipping... IE: honey mustard, ranch, etc, or just keep them simple and more healthy. Enjoy!
  5. **NOTE** This recipe also works for pan frying. I love to make cod this way. I use a little coconut oil heated in lg skillet, Add dill weed, lemon pepper, and lemon zest to coating. Dredge fish pieces in flour or cornstarch, shake off excess, then in egg white, then in the coating. Pan fry till crispy and done. I serve with a lemon wedge. Yum!
