  • Air Fryer


  • 2 bags Pork Rinds
  • 2 large Eggs, beaten
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tbsp Duck Fat or Oil
  • ½ tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 4-6 pieces Haddock or Cod
  • 4 Lemon Wedges optional
  • Tartar Sauce optional


  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork. Add the pepper to the eggs.
  • Blend the pork rinds in the blender until they are powder like. You can also put them in a ziploc bag and crush them by hand but the end result mixture will not be as fine.
  • Add seasonings to the pork crumbs and mix with a fork.
  • Take your fresh or thawed fish and dip it in the egg mixture until fully covered with egg.
  • Place the fish in the pork crumbs and turn over so that both sides become fully coated. For extra crispy coating, repeat the egg and pork crumb steps.
  • Place coated fish into the air fryer and air fry at 400° for 15 minutes. Turn the fish over and continue cooking for another 15 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  • Serve with lemon and/or tartar sauce if you like.


Note: We haven’t added salt because the pork rinds are salty enough in this recipe.
